Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy Procedure

Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy Procedure

Julian Kim, MD, Division Chief, Surgical Oncology, UH Case Medical Center, explains the nipple-sparing mastectomy procedure. Nipple-sparing mastectomy is one of the latest evolutions in mastectomy techniques. The procedure preserves the entire skin envelope and nipple areola which will be demonstrated in the video. Only the underlying breast tissue is removed. This procedure will give a very natural cosmetic result.
