Plastic surgery after removing a tumor
(May 4, 2016)- Breast cancer patients now have more treatment options and the medical community is focusing on doing plastic surgery immediately after removing tumors.
Surgeon Christine Rohde says women with larger breasts and smaller tumors are ideal candidates for Oncoplastic surgery. Those patients get a reduction in both breasts for symmetry. Some early stage breast cancer patients can get a mastectomy and implants at the same time, but women who choose a lumpectomy often have to wait until after radiation treatments to get implants.
The Healing Curve’s founder—Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie—has extensive experience helping people obtain the medical and aesthetic assistance they need, including researching the development of prosthetic limbs and studying at one of the nation’s premier burn and reconstructive hospitals. Focused originally on working with breast cancer survivors, The Healing Curve now seeks to offer cutting-edge reconstructive technologies to all who need it, ensuring that cancer survivors as well as victims of trauma erase the unwelcome physical reminders of the past and accentuate their natural beauty.
