Oblique: Oncoplastic breast reduction surgery for breast cancer.
This 50 year-old woman developed cancer in her left breast. She was 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighed 202 pounds, and her BMI was 36. She had large, heavy breasts. As part of her cancer treatment a Fort Worth breast oncology surgeon removed the cancer by doing a lumpectomy/partial mastectomy. Dr. Kunkel, using a technique called oncoplastic breast reconstruction, rearranged the remaining tissue in her left breast. He also performed a right breast reduction during that operation. She required radiation of her left breast after the surgery. Her ‘After’ photograph was taken 4 weeks after she completed the left breast radiation. *Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
