Treatment of breast disease
As a breast onco-plastic specialist, Antony Pittathankal is trained in both breast cancer surgery and breast plastic surgery. This means he is able to combine plastic surgical expertise with breast surgery experience to produce both an oncologically safe and cosmetic result. Even minor breast surgical procedures are carried out through specific incisions along cosmetic principles. When tissue is removed from the breast, special techniques are used to reduce the resulting volume and shape deficit. Antony Pittathankal also undertakes breast cancer risk reducing surgery.
Mr Pittathankal is assisted by a dedicated and experienced multidisciplinary team of breast care specialist nurses, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, anaesthetists and administrative assistants.

For cosmetic breast procedures Mr Pittathankal will give you advice from both cosmetic as well as future breast cancer risk/safety viewpoints. Having trained with plastic surgeons he has excellent links with these other specialists and works closely with them to bring you the best results.
