No visible reminder of your surgery, cancer or risk of cancer
Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery is an advanced approach to removing breast cancer. At The Hospitals of Providence, we want you to know all of your breast cancer surgery options so you can feel informed and empowered in your surgical decision. We pride ourselves on providing our patients with some of the most advanced surgical options in breast cancer surgery.
Breast cancer can be surgically removed with a mastectomy procedure (your surgeon will remove all of your breast tissue) or a lumpectomy procedure (your surgeon will remove only part of your breast tissue). With a Hidden Scar procedure, your surgeon will place the incision in a location that is hard to see, so that the scar is not visible when your incision heals. As a result, you have little to no visible reminder of the surgery or your cancer.
The Hidden Scar technique can be performed for a nipple sparing mastectomy or a lumpectomy procedure. You may qualify for Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery based on the size and location of your tumor, your breast shape, and your breast size.
