What Is Breast Surgery?
Breast surgery involves surgically modifying the breast tissue in both men and women. As experienced general surgeons in the Northern California region, our team specializes in breast surgeries for benign and malignant tumor removal, lumpectomy, and mastectomy procedures. Gynecomastia, which is a condition where the male breasts are enlarged, can be treated with breast surgery if the condition is causing undue stress, pain, or embarrassment. Our surgeons also perform lymph node biopsies and dissection if cancer is a possible concern. For more on breast surgery procedures or to set up a consultation, please contact Sierra Pacific Surgical in Roseville or Folsom, CA.

What Can I Expect With Breast Surgery?
Breast surgeries are performed by our team at an accredited surgical facility within the Greater Sacramento area. A patient's time in surgery and recovery will vary based on the type of breast surgery performed. A lumpectomy is a breast surgery where an abnormal or cancerous growth is removed while conserving as much of the breast tissue as possible. A mastectomy is the partial or complete removal of one or both breasts, typically carried out for the treatment of breast cancer. During these types of breast surgeries, our physicians may excise surrounding tissue and one or more lymph nodes to conduct a biopsy and determine if cancer has spread. Gynecomastia surgery is also offered by our skilled team to remove excess breast tissue in men and reshape the chest area for a more contoured appearance. Directly following any type of breast surgery, the experienced general surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical will do a post-op consultation to go over aftercare plans.
