Mr Youssef is a consultant oncoplastic breast surgeon at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
His speciality is oncoplastic breast surgery which balances oncologic safety for cancer surgery with good cosmetic outcomes. Oncoplastic surgery combines the skills of general surgery and plastic surgery.
He has extensive experience in performing the full spectrum of breast surgical procedures.
Breast conserving surgery can range from a simple wide local excision (lumpectomy) to more complex procedures when larger volume of excision is necessary. Mr Youssef is highly experienced in volume displacement techniques such as therapeutic mammoplasty and volume replacement such as chest wall perforator flaps (eg. LiCAP, LTAP) for partial breast reconstruction.
Sometimes, mastectomy may be indicated and can be combined with immediate reconstruction.
Mr Youssef is experienced in skin-sparing mastectomy, nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with implants and ADM (Acellular Dermal Matrix) or Latissimus Dorsi flap. He pioneered pre-pectoral implant reconstruction and has led the auditing of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) for this technique in Norwich.
Delayed breast procedures after completion of treatment can include delayed total breast reconstruction, lipofilling (fat grafting), breast reduction or augmentation and nipple/areola reconstruction.
Mr Youssef has published many articles in peer-reviewed journals focusing on surgical oncology, oncoplastic surgery techniques and patient-reported outcomes after breast reconstruction.
He is a lecturer at the medical school of the UEA and a tutor in courses teaching breast reconstruction. He regularly participates and presents in international and national meetings.
