Lumpectomy (aka: tylectomy) is a common surgical procedure designed to remove a discrete lump, usually a benign tumor or breast cancer, from an affected man or woman’s breast. As the tissue removed is generally quite limited and the procedure relatively non-invasive, compared to a mastectomy, a lumpectomy is considered a viable means of “breast conservation” or “breast preservation” surgery with all the attendant physical and emotional advantages of such an approach.
If you are reading this, you’ve probably already started to consider having breast augmentation or reconstruction surgery. Maybe you are dissatisfied with the size of your breasts, or perhaps one breast is sized differently than the other. Sometimes there is a reduction in breast size after pregnancy to be corrected, or you may need a breast reconstruction after a mastectomy.
Additional information regarding breast reconstruction and augmentation can be viewed on the website and on previous posts. Thank you for visiting!
