Women who are eligible for lumpectomy may be ideal candidates for oncoplastic surgery, also known as breast conservation with breast enhancement simultaneously. This leading-edge surgical discipline combines cancer treatment with plastic surgery.

Some breast cancer patients may choose to keep their breasts and undergo breast conservation surgery instead of a mastectomy. At the Aesthetic & Reconstructive Breast Center, Dr. Ali Sadeghi respects this choice. We treat breast cancer while providing our patients with beautiful aesthetic results.

Lumpectomy and breast lift (mastopexy)

First, the patient's lumpectomy incision is strategically positioned in the least obvious area. Often, this means that the incision is placed in the lateral breast; under the breast in the inframammary fold; or in the periareolar area.

If the patient needs axillary or underarm surgery, it's sometimes possible to use the same incision that we do for the breast.

Next, Dr. Sadeghi reposition the breast's remaining fatty tissue to fill the loss created by lumpectomy. The breast can then be lifted to hide the defect; the other breast is also lifted to create symmetry.

Patients who have undergone this procedure are incredibly pleased with their results — and sometimes, people can't even believe that they have undergone cancer surgery!
