Welcome from the Chair

Hello to all of our colleagues internationally who have come online to join us for this fascinating webinar, focusing on the current state of the art in breast reconstructive surgery.

This webinar has been brought together by the Journal of Clinical Medicine, which encompasses a range of clinical specialties and disciplines, bridging the gap between the different areas of clinical medicine.

The Journal of Clinical Medicine encompasses the affiliated societies of the International Bone Research Association (IBRA), the Italian Resuscitation Council (IRC), the Spanish Society of Hematology and Hemotherapy (SEHH), the Japan Association for Clinical Engineers (JACE), the European Independent Foundation in Angiology/Vascular Medicine (VAS), and others.

Today, we are focusing on breast reconstruction. Breast reconstructive surgery is an important procedure for women who have undergone mastectomy due to breast cancer or other medical conditions. It helps restore a sense of wholeness and femininity, improving the psychological well-being and quality of life of patients. The surgery can help boost self-confidence and body image, allowing women to feel more comfortable in their own skin. Additionally, breast reconstructive surgery can help patients achieve symmetry and balance in their appearance, which can have a positive impact on their overall physical and emotional health. It is a personal decision that should be made in consultation with healthcare providers to ensure the best outcome for each individual.

To touch on some of the modern advances in breast reconstructive surgery, some key advancements in the field include:

  1. Improved surgical techniques: Advancements in surgical techniques, such as the use of microsurgery and flap procedures, have allowed for more precise and natural-looking results.

  2. Autologous tissue reconstruction: This technique uses the patient's own tissue from other parts of the body to reconstruct the breast, leading to more natural results and reduced risk of implant-related complications.

  3. Preoperative planning and imaging: Advanced imaging technology, such as 3D imaging and virtual reality, allows surgeons to better plan the reconstructive process and customize treatment for each patient.

  4. Oncoplastic surgery: This approach combines cancer surgery with reconstructive techniques to achieve optimal cosmetic outcomes while ensuring complete cancer removal.

  5. Nipple-sparing mastectomy: This technique preserves the nipple and areola during mastectomy, allowing for more natural-looking results and improved aesthetic outcomes.

  6. Fat grafting: Fat grafting techniques involve transferring fat from one part of the body to the breast area to improve contour and symmetry, offering a minimally invasive option for reconstruction.

  7. Targeted therapies and personalized medicine: Advances in targeted therapies and personalized medicine have improved patient outcomes and reduced the risk of complications in breast reconstructive surgery.

Today, we have three invited speakers, who are all at the forefront of this field and will present some fascinating talks that encompass such advances.
