Oncoplastic breast surgery combined two disciplines: oncologic breast surgery
and plastic surgery. In the past, oncologic lumpectomy was often deforming.
But by combining oncologic and plastic surgery during the same procedure,
it is possible to remove the tumor and to often make the patient look
better than before.
Oncoplastic surgery not only removes the cancer, it also prevents undue
distortion of the breast, helping to maintain an aesthetically pleasing
breast after all of the treatment for cancer is complete. Hoag’s
expert breast surgeons have a variety of techniques available when performing
oncoplastic surgery and will ensure the option you choose leads to an
attractive cosmetic result and complete removal of the cancer.
At Hoag, the latest breast-saving oncoplastic surgical techniques are
provided by a team of specialized breast surgeons. For more information,
