GVS Breast Surgery Specialists (Step-by-Step) 

Whether you have been referred to a breast disease specialist for a lumpectomy, quadrantectomy, mastectomy, or other breast surgery, we try to make our breast surgery process as clear and understandable as possible. This means offering the women we collaborate with a transparent view of our process. 

While breast surgeries vary depending on the type of surgery, cancer, and specific breast condition, the main goals of your breast surgeon include to:

  • Ensure you have the highest level of comfort both physically and emotionally.
  • Listen carefully and attentively to any questions or concerns you may have. 
  • Keep you informed of every component of your breast care plan (including every step of any procedure(s) involved).
  • Remove as much of the diseased breast as possible (either through breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy).
  • Evaluate whether cancer has migrated to the lymph nodes.
  • Restore the breast to a natural shape once the disease area has been removed (breast reconstruction).
  • Guide you through your recovery, helping provide support and educational resources to maximize your healing experience.
