Comments Off on Two-stage approach to risk-reducing mastectomy improves results for women with large breasts
For women undergoing risk-reducing mastectomy to prevent breast cancer, reconstruction can be challenging in those with larger breasts. A two-stage approach–with initial breast reduction and ‘pre-shaping’ followed by mastectomy and reconstruction–appears to be a safer procedure with better cosmetic results, reports the September issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
