We offer a progressive, individualized approach to male breast cancer surgery.
A breast cancer diagnosis can seem devastating. Questions about how the cancer will be removed and how your your body will look after surgery are valid concerns. At O’Toole Plastic Surgery we will work hand-in-hand with you, your family and your oncology team to develop a surgical treatment plan that makes sense for your specific situation.
Mastectomy, lumpectomy, and fat grafting are all possible surgical options.
Every patient’s body composition, anatomy and diagnosis are unique. We do not follow a “one size fits all” surgical philosophy. We take time to understand each patient’s personal situation and customize a surgical plan that addresses your individual needs.
Always expect the best.
Involving Dr. O’Toole right from the start is ideal to maximize the available surgical options. Alternatively, engaging him later to correct issues from previous procedures with other surgeons is possible. Regardless, know that your satisfaction with the end result is most important.
We can eliminate the need for multiple surgeries.
Dr. O’Toole specializes in modern oncoplastic breast reconstruction techniques that utilize a variety of cosmetic incisions to eliminate deformity, hide scars, and help prevent post-radiation problems. For example, fat grafting is a technique that Dr. O’Toole has mastered to fine-tune breast shape after male breast surgery. This method can improve lumpectomy deformities and radiation changes throughout the chest area.
Don’t worry, you’re covered.
Breast cancer surgery is eligible for insurance coverage, regardless of your plan. Our practice works with most major insurance networks and Dr. O’Toole is on staff at five Pittsburgh area hospitals.
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and want to learn more about your surgical options, please give us a call.
