In patients with DCIS or breast cancer, the cancer can be removed using patterns to improve the appearance or shape of the breast. These patterns accomplish several things:

1) It allows large margins to be obtained as well as the overlying skin.

2) It prevents a post-operative lumpectomy defect.

3) It improves the appearance of the breast and “psyche” of the patient.

4) It facilitates the delivery of post-lumpectomy radiation.

5) It helps timely chemotherapy administration by controlling post-operative fluid accumulation.
