Treatment of breast cancer with lumpectomy is a viable option for many patients. Often the same patterns that are used to lift the breast can be used to resect tumors from the breast. Often the most commonly used pattern is the Wise pattern. When the breast cancer resides outside of the normal pattern, then the Wise pattern is modified to include the skin over the tumor. This is an early post-operative result. Sutures tend to dissolve over several weeks post-surgery.
