Reduction mammaplasty as a secondary therapy option for chronic pain after lumpectomy in the breast: a case report

Reduction mammaplasty as a secondary therapy option for chronic pain after lumpectomy in the... Chronic breast pain after surgery can have a profoundly negative impact on the physical and psychosocial function of patients. Treatment options are still in development, and no method hitherto described 100% pain relief. A 45-year-old woman suffering from chronic pain following breast surgery, who underwent reduction mammaplasty that lead to 100% pain relief, is presented. We suggest that mammaplasty could be a valuable treatment option in treating carefully selected patients with chronic breast pain. To our knowledge, this is the first report of mammaplasty for the treatment of chronic breast pain following breast surgery. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
