There are many types of breast surgery. The team determines what type of surgery you need based on your concerns or diagnosis. Types of breast surgery include:
During a lumpectomy, the surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical remove benign or malignant lumps from the breast, conserving as much of the breast tissue as possible.
A mastectomy is the surgical removal of one or both breasts. The team performs this procedure to treat breast cancer. They may also remove some of the surrounding tissue and lymph nodes.
Some women may also choose to have a mastectomy as a preventive measure if they’re at high risk of developing breast cancer. Sierra Pacific Surgical offers genetic testing to help you decide if preventive breast cancer surgery makes the right choice for you.
The team also performs gynecomastia surgery, removing excess breast tissue in men and reshaping the area for a more contoured appearance.
