The aim of surgery is to remove the cancer with a margin of
healthy breast tissue.
In some cases it may be necessary to consider a balancing
operation on the other breast to achieve a good cosmetic result.
This may involve a breast reduction, breast lift or even an
augmentation procedure. Whilst this is not a critical part of the
cancer surgery it can significantly improve the postoperative
recovery and cosmetic outcome - factors that are an integral part
of modern breast cancer surgery.
You will need adequate time to consider these various options
and to decide what is going to be best for you.
