NY Plastic Surgeon Explains the Benefits of a Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy
Dr. Choi of KCNY Plastic Surgery encourages patients to ask about reconstructive breast surgery following a mastectomy
Suite 1A (I-Newswire) August 23, 2013 - Each year, millions of women choose to undergo a life-saving mastectomy to combat breast cancer. Mastectomies are often followed by reconstructive breast surgeries. Dr. Mihye Choi of KCNY Plastic Surgery in New York says that one of the most effective forms of treatment in use today is the Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy, which is often accompanied with breast reconstruction.
Dr. Choi says that a Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy is effective, since it effectively removes all traces of cancer and reduces a patient's risk of the cancer returning. During the procedure, the breast tissue is first taken out and all tissue near and around the nipple area is removed, ensuring that all cancerous cells are eliminated.
"Patients who have had this surgery often choose to undergo reconstructive breast surgery during the same operation," Dr. Choi explains, "The reconstruction process is easier, since the nipple area does not need to be recreated, and this procedure allows the breasts to remain aesthetically pleasing. Going through both the removal and restoration process within the same surgery eliminates the need for any additional surgeries, which patients always appreciate, since they wake up having had both their physical and emotional health restored."
Dr. Choi adds that the risks associated with such surgeries are very minimal, although she does caution her patients that "leaving the nipple intact leaves a very small amount of breast tissue, which may be at risk later on for developing cancer."
Dr. Choi practices at KCNY Plastic Surgery in Manhattan. Interested parties are encouraged to find out more information at www.kcnyplasticsurgery.com.
