Types of Breast Surgery

👉A mastectomy is an operation to remove all of the breast tissue from a breast as a way to treat or prevent cancer.

👉Mastectomy can be a treatment option for many types of cancer:

  • Ductal carcinoma in situ or non-invasive breast cancer
  • Stage I and II (early stage) breast cancer
  • Stage III (locally advanced) breast cancer, after chemotherapy
  • Inflammatory breast cancer, after chemotherapy
  • Paget’s disease of the breast
  • Locally recurring breast cancer

👉Breast-conserving surgery (partial mastectomy/ lumpectomy), in which only the tumor is removed with negative margins, may be another option.

👉Newer mastectomy techniques can preserve the skin of the breast and allow it to have a more natural appearance – Skin sparing mastectomy

👉Newer mastectomy techniques can preserve the nipple areolar complex of the breast allowing it to have a more natural appearance – Nipple sparing mastectomy

👉Surgery to restore the shape of the breast, called breast reconstruction, can be done at the same time as the mastectomy or during a second operation.
