SCARLESS REMOVAL OF BREAST LUMP

Breast lumps are very common; most women will experience one or more breast lumps at some stage of their lives. Majority of the Breast Lumps are Benign (non-cancerous) but require proper evaluation. Fibro adenoma is common cause for a lump in young women, often between the ages of 15-30. Fibro adenomas probably arise due to hormonal changes in the breast. They are usually harmless and painless, but should be carefully evaluated and investigated. Once a lump has been shown to be definitely a fibro adenoma, it is safe to live under strict supervision and if it does not disappear then surgery is the answer. The final cosmetic appearance is important after any breast surgery, particularly so after the removal of benign breast lumps, as their removal on occasions may not be absolutely medically essential.

Procedure

Before surgery, you’ll change into a hospital gown and be given anesthesia. If local anesthesia is used, you may be given a sedative to relax during the breast lump removal. If you’re given general anesthesia, you’ll be in a painless sleep during the entire procedure. Many doctors recommend removing fibro adenomas, especially if they keep growing or change the shape of the breast. Traditionally these lumps are treated by general surgeons who remove the lumps through direct incisions on the breast lump. These leave behind undesirable ugly scars. Surgeon remove Fibro adenoma by a small per areolar incision this, leaves almost no visible scarring on your breast. Multiple lumps can be removed through this single incision.

Recovery

After the procedure, you’ll go to the recovery room. Your vital signs will be monitored while you wake up from the anesthesia. When you wake up, you can expect some pain in the incision area. You’ll be given medication for the pain. In the weeks following surgery, you’ll need to restrict your activities. It takes time to heal. It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions for care after surgery. You will need to take care of the incision at home. The stitches may dissolve on their own or your doctor will remove them during a follow-up appointment. If radiation therapy is necessary, it typically starts within a few weeks of a lumpectomy procedure.
