Nipple Sparing Reconstruction
Nipple Sparing Mastectomies, Subpectoral Expander to Smooth Round Silicone
This patient developed left breast cancer. She underwent nipple sparing mastectomies through a lower breast fold incisions. She had immediate subpectoral (under the muscle) tissue expanders placed with an Alloderm sling for support. She had further treatment with chemotherapy before exchange of her expanders for the latest generation, highly cohesive, smooth round silicone implants. This gave her a very nice, slightly fuller appearance as she desired. She is seen here while undergoing radiation therapy for further cancer treatment.
