When pursuing a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction, a woman with a small to medium sized tumor may benefit from a Skin Sparing Mastectomy. Such a mastectomy preserves nearly all of the skin of the breast, except the nipple. This natural “breast skin envelope” helps the plastic surgeon reconstruct a more natural shape of the breast at the time of the mastectomy surgery. Our Breast Surgeons and Plastic Surgeons work together to obtain the best oncologic and cosmetic results.
A Skin Sparing Mastectomy provides a much better cosmetic result by preserving the “envelope” of the skin of the breast.
