Breast surgery

Breast surgery

Different types of breast surgery include: breast reduction surgery, augmentation mammoplasty, mastectomy, lumpectomy, breast-conserving surgery, a less radical cancer surgery than mastectomy, mastopexy, or breast lift surgery. Breast surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures available today. The most important role of breast surgery is removal of benign or malignant lesions. Surgery aims to remove the breast cancer with a margin (border) of normal tissue to reduce the risk of the cancer returning (known as local recurrence) and to try to stop any spread elsewhere in the body. It is usually the first treatment choice for breast cancer.
