(May 4, 2016)- Breast cancer patients now have more treatment options and the medical community is focusing on doing plastic surgery immediately after removing tumors.

Surgeon Christine Rohde says women with larger breasts and smaller tumors are ideal candidates for Oncoplastic surgery.  Those patients get a reduction in both breasts for symmetry. Some early stage breast cancer patients can get a mastectomy and implants at the same time, but women who choose a lumpectomy often have to wait until after radiation treatments to get implants.
