Abstract

These guidelines have been developed to optimise key clinical and patient-reported outcomes experienced by patients undergoing breast reconstruction. These are designed to complement existing guidelines, including the Association of Breast Surgery Surgical guidelines for the management of breast cancer. They would also apply to women requesting risk reducing surgery and the very small number of men who request or require reconstructive surgery.

They aim to provide all members of the multidisciplinary team with guidance on best breast oncoplastic and reconstructive practice at each stage of a patient's journey, based on best current evidence.
