Scar Tissue is...: ...An inevitable and expected outcome after every operation. Your oncoplastic procedure likely "rearranged" the breast tissue, creating scarring in the area of the lumpectomy and below the areola, along the "inverted t".

I am going to get a breast reduction and would like to makemy belly smaller at the same time. Is just getting a panniculectomy done better for this type of procedure?

Depends: During abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) excess fat/skin is removed and abdominal wall muscles may be tightened. Panniculectomy only removes excess fat/skin bellow the level of umbilicus and the abdominal muscles are not tightened. Therefore decision between these procedures is based on what is the goal of the operation. ...Read more

Can i know what is the stage of T2N, Mo(infiltrating ductal cancer) and can I get the explanation for this stage and whether it is serious?tq

Need N stage: Hello. Breast cancer, correct? T2 means that it is between 2-5 cm in size. N0 is that it is not in the lymph nodes. If it is N1, N2, or N3 it is in the lymph nodes. M0 means it has not spread outside of the breast or lymph nodes and that is EXCELLENT. When a patient has M0 disease that means that there is a chance for cure. Cure means that it doesn't come back after treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more

The main difference with breast reduction surgery is change in size. ...Read more
