What is Skin and Nipple Sparing Mastectomy? | Breast cancer surgeon in Delhi

The entire breast is removed, commonly by an incision along the fold under a woman's breast (inframammary fold), with all skin and the nipple-areolar complex preserved.

This procedure, like the skin-sparing mastectomy, is performed in conjunction with reconstruction, either implant-based or autologous (tissue obtained from the patient's body).

Skin and nipple-sparing mastectomy is an option for women choosing preventive (preventative) mastectomy due to a high risk of developing breast cancer, such as those with a BRCA mutation.

Some patients with early-stage breast cancer (stages 0, 1, and 2) who may not qualify for breast conservation may be candidates for skin and nipple-sparing mastectomy.
