Breast Cancer Surgery

Mr Kasana treats breast cancer with modern innovative surgical techniques combining onco- surgery and plastic surgery (oncoplastic) techniques. This brings excellent cosmetic outcome, prevents cancer coming back locally and avoids need of mastectomy in many patients.  These techniques include local breast tissue flaps and chest wall flaps. These are called therapeutic mammoplasty techniques.

These techniques are Reduction mammoplasty, Central Round Block technique, Grissotti flap, Local Parenchymal rearrangement techniques and chest wall flaps (Crescent dermoglandular flap, LICAP flap, ICAP, MCAP etc.). I use all these techniques routinely in my practice. These techniques mentioned above (except reduction mammoplasty, which is used for large sized breasts) are used for small non ptotic breasts to fill the defect after removing chunk of breast tissue to get rid of cancer. The chest wall flaps are relatively minor surgeries to get extra tissue from the chest wall outside of the breast brought into the breast to minimise the defect.

 

Therapeutic Reduction Mammoplasty: this is a breast reduction/lift technique where large cancer can be removed from large and/or pendulous breasts with added advantage of breast lift. One would need similar lift to the other side to match up either at the same time or at a later date.

Breast Corrective Surgery

Correction of asymmetry from previous cancer treatment. Women who had defects and asymmetry in their breasts due to previous breast cancer are offered corrective surgery with latest technique known as Fat grafting. In this technique fat is taken from thigh or tummy with liposuction technique and injected into the breast to correct the defects and loss of volume.
