Nipple Sparing Mastectomy in NYC

A Nipple Sparing Mastectomy is a new procedure where a breast surgeon removes all of the breast tissue, without taking away any skin, leaving the nipple areola complex behind. This technique is becoming more frequent, and one reason for this is early diagnosis.

For a patient to be a good candidate for Nipple Sparing Mastectomy in NYC, they should have microscopic tumors or tumors that are a great distance away from the nipple areola complex. If the breast surgeon can effectively remove all of the breast tissue and preserve the nipple areola complex, the cosmesis in most situations can be enhanced.

Here are some before and after breast reconstruction photos of Nipple Sparing Mastectomy procedures.
