Breast Swelling Excision

A woman’s breasts are a symbol of feminine beauty. But unfortunately, the health of the breast or any physical changes to it are met with embarrassment and kept a secret. This is in fact a dangerous practice because not discussing breast health issues or getting them scanned through a doctor on time can lead to serious health issues for the woman.

Dr. Harish Ghildiyal, the Board-certified Plastic, Cosmetic Surgeon of Celebre Aesthetics, Surat understands the complex psychology of a woman and her hesitation in approaching a doctor for this purpose. However, he explains that in most cases if there is a lump inside a woman’s breast it is not cancerous.

On this page, Dr Harish Ghildiyal will be sharing vital information about Breast Fibroadenoma, Lumpectomy/Breast Swelling Excision, risks associated with and the details of the procedure.

What Is Breast Fibroadenoma?

Many young women and pre-menopausal women develop a lump in their breast. This lump is called Fibroadenoma. The term fibroadenoma combines the words “fibroma,” meaning a tumour made up of fibrous tissue, and “adenoma,” a tumour of gland tissue.

This lump is round or oval in shape and usually painless by nature but maybe associated with mild pain. Usually, a Breast Fibroadenoma is non-cancerous and in rare cases, it turns out to be benign cancer. The first thing that Dr Harish Ghildiyal tells his patients is to remove the fear of cancer from their mind. According to research 8 out of 10 cases of Breast Fibroadenoma are resolved by a simple Breast Swelling Excision procedure.

What Is Breast Swelling Excision Procedure?

Breast swelling excision surgery is also referred to as Lumpectomy or Breast Lump Removal Surgery by doctors. This is a surgery where the doctor removes the tumorous growth known as Breast Fibroadenoma from the patient’s breast.

According to Dr Harish Ghildiyal, Dehradun Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, this procedure is straightforward and may involve removing some tissue from around the lump region too.

Breast Swelling Excision Surgery is performed at Celebre Aesthetics, Surat.

A step by step breakdown of the Breast Swelling Excision Surgery:

Depending on your case, Dr Harish Ghildiyal will either administer local anaesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia. Once you are comfortably numb, the surgery will begin.

Dr Harish Ghildiyal will locate the lump based on clinical examination and findings in the imaging reports you have given to him during the consultation.

The next step is making an incision to remove the lump and some healthy tissue surrounding it. This step is performed very carefully by Dr Harish Ghildiyal. He makes the incision in such a way that the scar is not visible at all after the surgery.

The lump that has been removed will be sent out to the laboratory for further testing and analysis.

The incision is closed with sutures. The surgery is completed with this step.

What Are The Symptoms Of Breast Fibroadenoma?

The symptoms of Breast Fibroadenoma are easy to detect. The woman will feel a lump in her breast. Very rarely the shape of the breast may be slightly altered due to the lump.

Typically a lump is 2.5 cm in diameters but may be as large as 5 cm in diameters. Early detection and treatments are the only way to fight Breast Fibroadenoma.

The lump is usually painless and may not even be sensitive to touch.

As a woman, if you are experiencing these symptoms then Dr Harish Ghildiyal strongly advises you to see a doctor at the earliest

Frequently Asked Questions

Arm lift vs liposuction

Patients with good skin elasticity and excess pockets of fat in the upper arms region may benefit from liposuction plastic surgery. This is a minimally invasive body contouring treatment where tiny incisions are created and a special device known as a cannula is used to remove unwanted fat tissue. An arm lift, on the other hand, is the procedure of choice for patients who have sagging skin along with excess fat. This is a more comprehensive surgical procedure that aims to tone and tighten the entire upper arm area.

Will I have scars?

Scarring is inevitable after any surgical process. However, Dr. Harish Ghildiyal make sure to conceal incisions under the arms or in the armpit where they are hardly noticeable. The surgeons will also keep incisions to a minimum and enroll you in a post-operative scar management program to ensure that scars fade well with time. If you are concerned about scarring, make sure to discuss this with the surgeon during one of your consultation visits at Medicraft Clinic.

How long will my arm lift results last?

Brachioplasty is considered to be a permanent procedure that improves the appearance of the upper arms. Keep in mind though that your body will still undergo the normal aging process, which can negatively impact your result over the long term. Gaining or losing a significant amount of weight can also affect the outcome of your procedure. Most plastic surgeons recommend that you maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise in order to make the most out of your surgery.
