Lumpectomy is a treatment for breast cancer. When a breast cancer has been removed, the resulting defect can accumulate with fluid and has the potential to become infected. The closure of this space with Plastic & Reconstructive surgical techniques can help reduce this potential space and reduce the risk of infection post-operatively. This is important in patients who will need to proceed with radiation or chemotherapy.
