Single Center Oncoplastic Experience and Patient Satisfaction Reported via Patient Reported Outcomes

Oncoplastic breast surgery (OPS) is gaining in popularity compared with traditional breast conserving surgery due to wider resections and better satisfaction with cosmetic outcomes. This study analyzed OPS versus traditional breast conserving surgery outcomes: wound complications, reoperations for margins or fat necrosis, and ipsilateral recurrence.

This retrospective review compared 191 OPS and traditional breast conserving surgery patients on patient-related factors, primary outcomes, and patient reported outcome measures results. A propensity score method analysis using 1:1 to nearest neighbor was also performed.

We showed that OPS is a noninferior technique that should be discussed with appropriate patients. Operative planning should involve patient preferences in optimizing long-term cosmetic outcomes.
