If you are diagnosed with breast cancer your surgeon may recommend removal of your breast. This operation is called a mastectomy.

Is a mastectomy right for me?

Women at risk of developing breast cancer may also choose to undergo a mastectomy.

What happens during a mastectomy?

During a consultation, our consultants will discuss your treatment options and recommend the most effective and less invasive procedure possible for your condition. To enhance your time spent in hospital and patient experience, all of our consultants are fully supported by our specialist breast care nurse and attentive matron-led nursing team. Our nursing staff pride themselves on providing unrivalled comfort and first-class care.

Recovery from mastectomy

Your length of hospital stay will depend on the level of surgery performed and your recovery. Our team of specialist physiotherapists will provide expert treatment, rehabilitation and advice during your hospital stay, and if appropriate follow-up as an outpatient to support your full recovery.
