A mastectomy is a surgery to remove a breast. This operation aims to stop the pathological process, reduce the risk of recurrence and prevent the spread of metastases. Recently, more and more women a high risk for breast cancer - for example, with a genetic predisposition and the expression of the mutant BRCA1/2 gene or the development of cancer in the second gland, decide on prophylactic mastectomy.
Radical mastectomy is thecomplete removal of the mammary gland together with the fascia of thepectoralis major muscle, the pectoralis major and minor muscles, regional lymph nodes. The indication for radical mastectomy is advanced breast cancer.
There are several author's methods of a radical mastectomy. The price of breast removal depends on the category of complexity.
Prophylactic mastectomy (bilateral) is a preventive removal of the breast. This possibility is considered in patients at high risk of breast cancer. Bilateral mastectomy involves the complete subcutaneous removal of all breast tissue (that is, subcutaneous amputation of an organ). In the vast majority of cases, breast removal surgery is accompanied by simultaneous breast reconstruction using prostheses or flaps of their own muscles, which also determines the cost of mastectomy.
Rehabilitation after breast removal surgery includes correction of existing hormonal disorders, diet, vitamin therapy, psychotherapy. If it is necessary to restore the former shape of the breast,plastic surgery is performed. In seven days after the operation, they start physiotherapy exercises. The set of exercises is selected individually.
The cost of an operation to remove a breast tumor depends on the category of its complexity, the volume of intervention, the need for mammoplasty, the price of anesthesia, the presence of concomitant pathologies, and the time spent in the ward after the operation. Do not forget that the cost of removing the mammary glands also depends on the experience of the doctor and his academic title.
The exact price can be found out only after all the studies have been carried out and a treatment plan has been drawn up, so the cost of a breast removal operation is formed strictly individually.
Reconstructive plastic surgery to restore the breast after its breast removal surgery provides a better quality of life and psychological comfort for patients. The multidisciplinary Dobrobut medical center is one of the best for breast removal in Kyiv. There are many reconstructive mammoplasty techniques, such as breast implant placement, reconstruction using the patient's own tissues, corrective procedures (liposuction, restoration of the nipple and its areola, etc.).One-step reconstruction - according to the indications, a skin-preserving operation is performed, and an implant is placed in the existing cover, more often under the pectoralis major muscle.
Two-stage - reconstruction. In the first stage, a special expander is placed in the area of the postmastectomy defect. Over time, with the help of a special port, saline is introduced into the expander, resulting in the skin being stretched to the size of the remaining breast. The second stage is replacingthe expander with a permanent expander-implants, which does not require replacement Between stages takes 1.5 to 6 months, depending on the previous treatment, the patient's tissues, and the tasks set.
Breast reconstruction with the help of own tissues is a technically complex operation, and therefore the cost of a breast removal operation is much higher. This technique uses the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and muscles to form flaps transplanted to the breast site. There are several techniques for cutting out a flap, each of which has its own indications and capabilities.
