Surgical treatments for both benign and malignant diseases of the breast
Our consultant breast surgeons specialise in corrective and reconstructive surgery on the breasts. This is most commonly required in cases of cancer, however there are also benign diseases and conditions that can lead to breast surgery. As well as breast surgeons, many oncology surgeons (specialist cancer surgeons) will be adept at breast surgery, as will some plastic surgeons. We also work with consultant oncoplastic surgeons, who specialise in both.
Our clinical breast oncologists (breast cancer specialists) can support you beyond your surgery and provide further advice on radiotherapy, hormonal and chemotherapy treatment if appropriate.
If you need breast surgery and are looking for a compassionate and experienced specialist to support you through your treatment, our experts are ready and waiting to help you. We know just how daunting breast surgery can be, and our specialist teams are here to make you feel safe, supported and well-informed from start to finish. Call or book online today and you could be having your initial consultation in as little as 48 hours.
Various procedures can be performed to remove cancerous tissues from your breasts and nearby lymph nodes, including total mastectomy (breast removal).
In some instances, where a particularly high risk of developing breast cancer is indicated, people opt to have their breasts surgically removed in order to prevent developing the disease.
Certain non-cancerous lumps found in the breast will need to be surgically removed.
Many people choose to have reconstructive breast surgery after surgery to treat breast cancer. Having the breast partially or wholly rebuilt can improve body image and self-esteem, aiding the recovery process physically, emotionally and psychologically.
If you have breast cancer related symptoms you may undergo investigations which may include ultrasound or mammography, FNA (fine needle aspiration) and CT or X-ray guided biopsy.
This is a minor procedure that involves making a small incision into your breast to remove a lump in order that it can be examined for signs of cancer. If you do have cancer, you may need to have further surgery.
Also known as breast conserving surgery, this procedure removes the cancerous lump from your breast along with some surrounding tissue.
A mastectomy is a procedure to remove your whole breast. Some people will need to have both breasts removed. Rarely, your chest muscles are also removed in what's known as a radical mastectomy.
The aim of breast reconstruction surgery is to restore as closely as possible the size and shape of your natural breasts after you have had treatment for cancer, typically a mastectomy. Various surgical techniques can be used to achieve this, including DIEP flaps and TRAM flaps, fat transfer and silicone implants.
Breast reconstruction is totally optional and many women choose not to have it.
Breast reduction surgery reduces the size of your breast(s). Although breast reduction is often performed for cosmetic reasons, many procedures are done for medical reasons, and some a mix of both.
Gynaecomastia is a very common condition that causes excess breast tissue in males. It can have very detrimental effects on self-esteem and many men choose to have breast reduction surgery, also known as a chest reduction.
Often breast surgery will be covered by your private health insurance, but not always. Speak to your provider directly to see what's included in your policy.
If you want to pay for your own treatment, you can either pay in full or take advantage of our flexible payment options, which allow you to spread the cost over a period of up to five years.
Our self-pay customers benefit from fixed-price packages, meaning you'll know exactly what you're going to pay before you book your surgery. Your initial consultation and early diagnostic tests won't be included, but the cost of your surgery and hospital fees are, and so is your aftercare programme. There are no hidden costs down the line.
