Anytime a breast is at high risk or affected by malignant cells, removing the whole breast may be the safest and most effective treatment path. In these cases, a mastectomy may provide the most peace of mind.
Mastectomy With Breast Reconstruction
It is common to pair this breast surgery with breast reconstruction. A breast reconstruction surgery essentially creates artificial breasts that mimic the appearance of your natural breasts. During your breast surgery, skin-sparing techniques will be used so that the nipple, areola, and skin of the breast can be used to reconstruct the breasts.
Breast reconstruction involves the use of saline, silicone, or gummy bear implants. Your implant material will affect the appearance and feel of the artificial breasts; likewise, the shape of the implants will also determine what your breasts will look like after you have recovered from the procedure. We will guide you through the process of selecting the implants that will meet your aesthetic requirements.
