Oncoplastic Reconstruction


Oncoplastic ReconstructionSurgical management of breast cancer can now be combined with cosmetic techniques thanks to oncoplastic reconstruction in Long Island. Removal of cancerous growth in the breasts can leave your chest misshapen or unnatural looking. By performing reconstruction using the remaining breast tissue, it is now possible to achieve well-contoured breasts right after tumor excision.

What Is Oncoplastic Reconstruction?

Oncoplasty surgery is immediate breast reconstruction aimed at preserving the contour of your breast following breast cancer lumpectomy surgery and achieving symmetry with your non-affected breast. After a large lumpectomy, your breast may be left with a large tissue defect which if left alone can cause your breast shape to become distorted. Dr. Layliev will rearrange the tissue of your affected breast to preserve a normal breast contour; this can involve a breast reduction or breast lift of your affected breast as well as a breast reduction or breast lift of your non-affected breast, leaving you with a more normal or enhanced appearing breasts after you wake up from surgery.

Ideal Candidates

Breast cancer patients who are recommended to undergo a lumpectomy or mastectomy may also be good candidates for oncoplastic reconstruction. A patient who has enough breast tissue left after mastectomy can benefit from this breast-conserving technique. Patients who want better cosmetic outcomes after unilateral or bilateral breast cancer removal are ideal for this procedure.

Your Consultation

A multidisciplinary evaluation will be completed to confirm your health status and candidacy for the procedure. Diagnostic tests and a physical examination will be performed during your consultation. Your medical history will be thoroughly reviewed, including all underlying conditions, current medications, and past treatments or surgeries.

The Procedure

The oncoplastic reconstruction begins once the removal of the cancerous tissue is complete. The remaining breast tissue may be used to reshape the breasts. Breast lift or reduction techniques may be used on one or both breasts. These include excision of excess skin, tightening of the remaining skin, and removal of fat and/or glandular tissue.

Oncoplastic Reconstruction Recovery

The recovery period following oncoplastic breast reconstruction may depend on the body’s natural healing ability. Most patients need six to eight weeks to fully recover. There will be swelling, soreness, bruising, and pain afterward, as it is a major invasive surgery. Light movement is encouraged in the first few weeks for faster healing.

Some patients are able to return to work after several weeks. Avoid strenuous activities, sports, and exercise for up to eight weeks.

Oncoplastic Breast Reconstruction Cost

The cost of a oncoplastic breast reconstruction varies, because it is a highly individualized surgery tailored for each patient. The overall price may include anesthesia, operating room facilities, and other related expenses. Additional tests and imaging may also add to your total. Contact us for additional information.

  • “I feel like an entirely NEW person after my breast reduction”

    I feel like an entirely NEW person after my breast reduction. I’ve wanted this procedure for a very long time and couldn’t muster up the courage or time.

    After finding Dr. Layliev and seeing his “work” with other patients, I took the plunge and it was worth it! I never expected the results I’ve had, they’ve far exceeded my hopes. I love the shape, the size, the placement, and the incisions and I love how Dr. Layliev took his time with me, before my surgery and after, I felt it was truly genuine and he cared about me. The staff at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery were insightful and incredibly helpful during the process, especially Lauren S(!) who was a star player. Long Island Hospital was efficient & organized, I’d happily have anything done there and the nurses were gentle, not rushing me post-op-which was what I was expecting. Glad to be proven wrong. p.s. I was back at work 4 days later…no problem.

  • “Great Experience”

    I have always had extremely large breasts since I was a teenager. I am now 35 and have 3 children, and after a long drawn-out decision-making process, I finally decided to have my breasts reduced. I have suffered from constant back, neck, and shoulder pain.
    I consulted with Dr. Layliev, who helped me decide what procedure would be best for me. I was a size 38M ( yes that is a real size). We decided on a bilateral breast reduction w/ nipple graft. At first, I was a little scared but Dr. Layliev assured me that once he was finished I would look natural.
    My procedure was on January 30, 2019, and now almost 2 months later I have small breasts and no back pain at all. I’m not very fond of the scars, I know it’s still early and they will get smaller and eventually disappear.
    I would like to thank Dr. Layliev and his entire team for helping me. (I know it wasn’t easy.) Jessica, you were my angel in this whole process. I don’t think I would have gone through with this whole thing if you weren’t around. Thank you so much

  • “I Wish I Did It Sooner”

    After many years of contemplating breast reduction, I finally decided to go see Dr. Layliev. The staff was wonderful, and the doctor was so professional and compassionate. Jessica and Michelle are great! It is so nice to get a real person on the phone when you call, and not a recording saying the receptionist is busy and will call back within 48 hrs. I am only sorry I did not do this years ago. I recommend this office to anyone who wants to change their life for the best. My neck pain is already gone and I love my results.

  • “Couldn’t Be Happier!”

    Dr. Layliev was so attentive and sympathetic from my very first consultation visit. He took the time to listen to my concerns and fears. Not to mention he did an amazing job on my surgery. I couldn’t have asked for better results or a better doctor! My entire life I have been self-conscious of my chest size (always bigger than a DD)…the change in my posture and my attitude and esteem is beyond any happiness I can explain. I can’t say thank you enough to Dr. Layliev!!

  • “21 Years Old, Breast Reduction Very Much Needed!”

    To some women having bigger breasts is a blessing, but not in my case. I’ve had nothing but pain and discomfort for years. I just want to express my excitement about my reduction and lift done by Dr.Layliev. I’m only 5’2 and my breast made me fall over. I’d never been so happy with my breast and appearance until I had my surgery. This was the best decision I ever made! There was no pain after and I would recommend this surgery and Dr.Layliev to everyone!

  • “Dr. Layliev and his staff were great”

    I am only 2 weeks post procedure but I can already say it was worth it for me. I was a DD/E bra size and I went down to a B. I had been contemplating a reduction for over 10 years. My breasts got larger and larger with pregnancy and weight gain. Even when I lost weight my breasts were still large and droopy. I finally went for a consultation with Dr. Layliev and I immediately felt comfortable with him. He’s a wonderful Dr and truly compassionate to his patient. He explains everything and I never felt rushed as I struggled to ask all my questions because of nervousness. He’s attentive and concerned with your recovery, as he has called me multiple times at home to check up on me…. not many Drs do that, or at least none that I have dealt with. The procedure was really a nonissue for me and recovery so far has been great. I should have done it a long time ago but you get there when you get there. I hope this helps someone make the choice a little sooner. Dr. Layliev and his staff were great. Thank you Dr. Layliev, Marissa, Michelle, and Jessica for an all-around great experience.

  • “Dr. Layliev and his team was very professional”

    Dr. Layliev and his team were very professional from the beginning of the consultation all the way to my post-operation follow-up. I was kept informed about all aspects of my procedure.

  • “I look and feel great”

    Dr. Layliev and his staff were absolutely amazing, from the decision-making to the preparation all the way through the actual surgery. I look and feel great.

  • “My scarring is minimal”

    Dr. Layliev really listened to me. Took everything step by step and reassured me the whole time. He did an amazing job and my scarring is minimal. This surgical procedure changed my life. It hurt to stand or sit up straight before it because my breasts were so big. Now my back is so much better and I can do so much more.

  • “One of the best doctors”

    Dr. Layliev is absolutely without a doubt in my mind one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. Working for a health system has allowed me to understand and see the kindness and experience of the surgeon. Could not have asked for more. Before my procedure, I suffered from back pains as well as feeling extremely uncomfortable due to the weight of my chest. After my surgery, I feel no back pain. I feel extremely comfortable including being able to get a lot more variety of bras. I feel fantastic.

  • “I am highly satisfied”

    Dr. Layliev performed surgery for my breast biopsy to close the incision caused by the biopsy. He was extremely kind and informative about the procedure and reassuring during a not-so-pleasant procedure. I am highly satisfied with everyone in the office, from all the doctors and their kindness along with the professionalism and great service of everyone on the team for this procedure and my breast reduction done in Oct 2017. I recommend the practice to all my friends.

  • “Dr. explained everything”

    Friendly staff. Dr. explained everything slowly and carefully so that I could fully understand the procedure. Clean office. Easy to make appointments

  • “Dr. Layliev was always reassuring”

    Every time I went in for follow ups I never felt rushed, my questions were always answered to my satisfaction, and most of all Dr. Layliev was always reassuring and his staff always treated me with respect and never made me feel uncomfortable. This office is so pleasant and nice they make you want to go back. It’s such a pleasant experience to LIKE going to a doctor’s office. I lived too many years being uncomfortable and in pain in my neck and back because of my large breasts if I would have known what a gratifying experience this was I would have done it years ago! Plus I have the added bonus of looking in the mirror and feeling great about myself. I’m a mature woman and never thought that I would feel good about my appearance again!
