63 year old grandmother of 6 presented with newly diagnosed right breast cancer. Patient had a screening mammogram performed revealing a 1.6 cm mass at the 11 o\\\'clock position of the right breast. Patient elected to have breast conservation therapy and desired to be treated with a lumpectomy in conjunction with breast lift/reduction at the same time. This combined procedure helps reduce asymmetry and improve overall cosmetic result with repositioning of the nipple onto the center of the breast mound. Below are her preoperative photos.
Patient is seen below 4 weeks after lumpectomy surgery. Patient already prepped (simulated) for radiation therapy to start.
Patient was allowed to heal for 4 weeks and then underwent radiation to the right breast for 6 weeks. Radiation therapy is necessary in patients who have a lumpectomy in order to reduce recurrence rate. Radiated right breast is seen symmetrical with left side and below photos are 6 months out from completion of radiation therapy to the right breast.
Reconstruction remains stable at 2 years.
