ALMOST U PROSTHETICS
Lumpectomy is a surgery to remove cancerous breast tissue along with a rim of normal tissue surrounding it called a surgical margin. The procedure preserves the rest of the breast as well as sensation in the breast. Your doctor may also refer to it as a wide local excision, segmental resection, or partial mastectomy.
During a Lumpectomy, only the part of the breast that has cancer is removed. The cancer lump and some breast tissue around the lump are removed. How much of the breast is removed will depend on the lump’s size, and where it is located.
Breast asymmetry is a common challenge for women after breast-conserving surgery or reconstruction following a breast cancer diagnosis.
For many women, the asymmetry typically begins not long after the treatment and recovery process and can have a serious impact on their quality of life.
