BACKGROUND: The demand for reconstructive breast procedures of various types has accelerated in recent years. Coupled with increased patient expectations, it has fostered the development of oncoplastic and reconstructive techniques in breast surgery. In the setting of postmastectomy reconstruction, patient satisfaction and quality of life are the most significant outcome variables when evaluating surgical success. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of life after implant breast reconstruction compared with autologous breast reconstruction...

OBJECTIVE: Breast reconstruction is associated with multiple psychological benefits. However, few studies have identified clinical and psychological factors associated with improved satisfaction and quality of life. This study examined factors which predict satisfaction with breast appearance, outcome satisfaction and quality of life following post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. METHODS: Women who underwent post-mastectomy breast reconstruction between 2010 and 2016 received a postal questionnaire consisting of: The BREAST-Q Patient Reported Outcomes Instrument, The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer QLQ-30 Questionnaire, The Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale and a series of Visual-Analogue Scales...

Breast-cancer-specific tools that measure health-related quality of life (HRQOL) were developed for use in research or clinical practice, and little is known about these tools' performance ability for quality improvement. Furthermore, existing tools may not fully reflect all issues that contribute to quality care as seen by patients. Work is needed to identify and validate patient-reported outcome measures for use in quality improvement in breast cancer surgical care. We conducted an exploratory qualitative study in order to better understand what HRQOL domains and processes of care define high quality surgical care for women undergoing mastectomy for breast cancer from both the patient and clinician perspective...

INTRODUCTION: Bilateral mammoplasty (BM) can optimise oncological safety and aesthetic outcomes in women with large or ptotic breasts whose tumour to breast volume ratio or tumour location pose a challenge to standard breast-conserving therapy (BCT) and for whom mastectomy (with or without reconstruction) may be the only alternative. METHODS: We undertook a comprehensive analysis of surgical outcomes (complications according to the Clavien Dindo classification), acute radiation morbidity (Radiation Therapy Oncology Group classification), oncological outcomes, and patient satisfaction (BREAST-Q questionnaire) in women who underwent BM for breast cancer (BC) from June 2009-November 2014...

A breast cancer diagnosis imposes significant emotional and psychological duress. The purpose of this study is to assess the baseline quality of life (QOL) of immediate, delayed, and secondary breast reconstruction patients, comparing these results with QOL in women seeking plastic surgery for cosmetic breast, and non-breast procedures. From 2012 through 2013, immediate (group 1), delayed (group 2), and secondary (Group 3) reconstruction patients, aesthetic breast (group 4) and non-breast plastic surgery patients (group 5) answered Breast-Q questionnaires...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) is becoming a viable oncoplastic option. There is debate regarding the best approach that balances oncological safety with aesthetics. In this study, we describe an approach involving a hemi-periareolar incision and evaluate its safety and outcomes. METHODS: Patients treated at single center between 2012 and 2015 were observed prospectively. After a histologically negative subareolar biopsy, immediate reconstruction with implant and acellular dermal matrix was performed after NSM...
