What Is a Nipple-sparing Mastectomy?

Board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Rosenbaum provides nipple-sparing mastectomy procedures for women in Miami Beach, FL. The majority of women decide to have a nipple-sparing mastectomy as a way to preserve the skin, areola, and nipple when undergoing a mastectomy. When you are facing a mastectomy and are not positive regarding which kind of technique would look and feel as natural as possible, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenbaum. Preserving your own nipple, a nipple-sparing mastectomy provides the most natural-feeling results. Additionally, nipple-sparing breast reconstruction can be provided with implants or with a fat transfer of your own tissues from a secondary area on your body.

Who Is A Candidate For a Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy?

In order to be a candidate for a nipple-sparing mastectomy, you will still be in the initial stages of planning your mastectomy procedure. You may also be looking for a board-certified plastic surgeon who provides this advanced technique, allowing you the option to preserve your natural nipples. During a thorough consultation with Dr. Rosenbaum, he will be able to determine if you are an ideal candidate for a nipple-sparing mastectomy and will be able to comprehensively answer any questions that you may have. 

Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy Technique

With a nipple-sparing mastectomy, only the underlying glandular tissue is removed while the overlying skin and nipple are left intact. In order to do so, Dr. Rosenbaum will create a small incision. The exact area of the incision may vary, depending on the needs of the patient, but typically, it is placed from the nipple to the lower portion of the breast.

Once the necessary tissue has been carefully removed, an implant can be placed within the breast. Additionally, fat grafting is available to restore volume to the breast with the use of your own fat tissue. Some patients may also desire a breast lift. Within your consultation, Dr. Rosenbaum will talk with you about your breast augmentation and lift options, as well as determine if you are a candidate. 

After the completion of the procedure, the incisions will be sutured closed. You may also need to be monitored for some time before you are able to return home. 

What to Expect

All necessary aftercare instructions will be provided by a member of our team, including which garments should be worn during recovery. You will also need to return to our facility for your follow-up appointments with Dr. Rosenbaum so that your healing progress can be monitored. You should also keep a close eye out for infection or any other abnormalities.
