Procedures: Nipple and Skin Sparing Mastectomy
Patients who are candidates for this surgery preserve their breast skin – including the nipple and areola.
Our practice works alongside breast surgeons who have expertise in nipple, skin, and nerve sparing techniques. Traditional mastectomy incisions are not always necessary. Scars can be hidden in a natural crease of the breast producing a more aesthetic result. Patients who are candidates for this surgery can preserve their breast skin and/or the nipple and areola complex. Ultimately, it is a choice between the patient and their breast surgeon if they are candidates for this surgery.
Advances in microsurgery and breast surgery allow us to perform mastectomy with hidden scars as in a breast lift or augmentation, without leaving scars on the breast skin. Patients who are candidates for this surgery preserve their breast skin – including the nipple and areola. Ultimately, it is a choice between the patient and their breast surgeon if they are candidates for this surgery.
This technique begins with an incision under the arm, under the breast fold, around the nipple or down the bottom of the breast below the bra line. Reconstruction involves using a one of the perforator flap techniques (DIEP or GAP), with the relocated tissue filling in and shaping the breast.
