Oncoplastic Reconstruction of Lumpectomy Defects

In patients who have breast cancer, some can undergo lumpectomy and radiation therapy. In general the concept for this method of reconstruction is amenable to those patients who have a smaller tumor relative to the size of their breast. After lumpectomy and oncoplastic reconstruction in these patients, the goal is to get the wounds to heal by about the six week mark post-surgery prior to commencing chemotherapy.
