Dr. Harness describes what a woman's breast should look like following oncoplastic surgery.

Dr. Harness, M.D.:
I hope a woman’s breast looks great following oncoplastic surgery. That’s the idea to be focused on, cosmetic outcome. As far as recovery from that kind of surgery, it depends on the extent of the oncoplastic surgery. In general, we are talking about a few weeks, maybe on up to four to six weeks, if we are rotating tissue in from either the back or from the belly.
