- The term oncoplastic surgery refers to surgery on the basis of oncological principles during which the techniques of plastic surgery are used, mostly for reconstructive and cosmetic reasons. - The advantage of oncoplastic surgery for breast cancer is the possibility of performing a wider excision of the tumour with a good cosmetic result. - Oncoplastic surgery is a broad concept that can be used for several different combinations of oncological surgery and plastic surgery: mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of the breast, partial mastectomy and reconstruction, excision of the tumour by reduction mammoplasty, and tumour excision followed by remodelling mammoplasty. - Oncoplastic surgery requires careful preoperative planning, which is essential in all forms of breast-sparing surgery. - Oncoplastic principles can easily be applied to basic breast-sparing surgery, but one can also choose to increase the possibilities of breast surgery by organising good cooperation between the oncological surgeon and the plastic surgeon.
