However, breast cancer patients are not the only ones who can benefit from oncoplastic surgery to improve their quality of life and psychological state. Some other examples of oncoplastic surgery include:

  • Recovering from head and neck surgery that causes functional and cosmetic difficulties
  • Skin cancer reconstruction and restoration

One of the defining features of oncoplastic surgery is that you do not have to wait until after cancer treatment to have it done. This helps patients recover and heal both physically and mentally from their cancer journey. However, reconstructive procedures can be delayed six months after treatment or recovery from other procedures.

As a practical approach to cancer treatment and care, oncoplastic surgery leaves the patient immediately whole and reconstructed without the potential significant deformity or asymmetry. Many patients assume their insurance will not cover reconstructive surgery, such as on the unaffected breast, or necessary follow-up procedures. However, federal law requires insurance to cover all stages of breast reconstruction.
