Breast Reduction Allows More Women To Choose Nipple Sparing, Direct To Implant Option For Prophylactic Mastectomy

About 2.3 million women in the United States may be at increased risk for breast cancer because of their family history, according to the nonprofit organization FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered.)  An estimated 940,000 people in the U.S. carry a BRCA (BReast CAncer) gene mutation, and women with a BRCA mutation have up to an 85% lifetime risk for breast cancer. More than one-third of high-risk women choose to significantly reduce their breast cancer risk with a prophylactic mastectomy.

Traditionally, post-mastectomy breast reconstruction requires tissue expanders to be placed in the breast immediately after the breast tissue is removed, followed by months of saline fills and a second surgery to insert the permanent implant. A nipple sparing mastectomy preserves the woman's original nipple areola complex (NAC), and the direct to implant, or one step, procedure provides an immediate breast reconstruction within one surgery.
