Expander to Implant, single mastectomy 9.0
Single skin sparing mastectomy
Single skin sparing mastectomy with expander and nipple removal. This procedure was carried out on a breast that had previously been treated with a lumpectomy & radiation 5 years prior.
It healed really well despite concerns due to previous treatment to the area.
I had the expander inserted partially filled under the muscle.
Then gradually filled every few weeks for 6 months in preparation to exchange to a permanent teardrop implant.
