The Laparoscopic axillary approach is a minimally invasive surgery performed using very small incisions and special tools. A small camera called a laparoscope provides video images of the treatment area for the surgeon, eliminating the need for larger incisions in open surgery.
Mastectomy is a surgical option for treating breast cancer and is the only surgical option to reduce the risk of breast cancer. It involves the removal of the entire breast, including skin, breast tissue, areola, and nipple, as well as most of the lymph nodes in the armpit (armpit). However, most of the pectoral muscles are preserved.
Therefore, the laparoscopic axillary approach used for right mastectomy may involve using laparoscopic techniques to remove the right breast and most of the right axillary lymph nodes. This method may reduce the size of the incision, thereby reducing pain and recovery time. However, the use of this specific technique will depend on many factors, including the patient’s health status, tumor size and location, and the doctor’s experience and expertise.
