Nipple-sparing mastectomies allow women to keep and maintain the look of their own nipples and areolas. Scarring is minimal and nearly the entire breast skin of the reconstructed breast is the woman’s own natural skin. Studies show that complication rates are low and the risk of cancer recurrence is not higher than with other methods.
nipple-sparing mastectomies can be used for women seeking either immediate or staged reconstruction. Although immediate reconstruction is the most common among women undergoing nipple-sparing mastectomies, tissue expanders can be used to fill the pocket for final reconstruction at a later date.
