Breast Reconstruction – Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy – Houston
The timing of breast reconstruction is an important consideration. Generally, breast reconstruction begins at the same time as a mastectomy or is delayed until afterward. With newer techniques such as nipple-sparing mastectomy, breast reconstructions are becoming increasingly popular.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos before you undergo a mastectomy, and discuss your concerns. Reconstruction that begins immediately after nipple-sparing procedures generally reports better, more satisfactory results. During a nipple-sparing mastectomy, the surgeon carefully plans to save the tissue of the nipple and areola. Consequently, the final results of the breast reconstruction appear more natural.
