There is now a focused movement toward a less invasive skin sparing mastectomy as cancer surgeons and reconstructive surgeons have come to realize that skin involvement in breast cancer is extremely rare. By leaving the skin envelope, the reconstructive surgeon can now create the removed breast mound at the same sitting and the non-involved skin envelope is then redraped over the mound to complete the reconstruction. In the past, the reconstructive process could take up to 3 to 4 months and could require up to 2 or 3 operations.
This new combination of the mastectomy and immediate reconstruction method is an extremely significant improvement – mostly because it is a single-staged procedure where the mastectomy and reconstruction are done at once.
