Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

HIGHLIGHT

The Division of Plastic Surgery is dedicated to the improvement of quality of life for patients treated for cancer at the IEO.

Our Activities

We fully collaborate with the Breast Surgery division and we also support the divisions of Gynecology, Thoracic surgery, General Surgery, and Melanoma and Sarcoma. Our main contribution to breast surgery includes performing all the techniques of immediate breast reshaping after conservative surgery (so called oncoplastic surgery) and all the techniques of total breast reconstructions (immediate and delayed procedures), including the use of tissue expanders or definitive implants, latissimus dorsii flaps, TRAM flaps and microsurgical flaps. We are also developing new approaches such as the use of an Acelullar dermal matrix (ADM) associated with implant breast reconstructions. The use of fat grafting has been also strongly developed in our department; it is more frequently used as a refinement after breast reconstruction or, in selected cases, for total breast reconstruction exclusively with adipose tissue.

The Division also has a role in medical education and eachyear, in June, organizes a breast surgery course, with threedays of live surgery, in order to teach breast surgeons andplastic surgeons to deal with reconstructive surgery.
