Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction Video Series
If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, there are a number of surgical options for removing the cancer and getting a result that works for you.
Many women choose the option of mastectomy with breast reconstruction. Some women are able to keep their nipples with nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM). For women who aren’t candidates for NSM, breast reconstruction surgery followed by nipple reconstruction and/or tattooing is an option.
In this video series, you can watch surgeons from the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery in New Orleans explain nipple-sparing mastectomy and nipple reconstruction, and tattoo artist Vinnie Myers talks about the 3D nipple tattooing technique. You’ll also meet three women — Mimi, Deidra, and Peggy — who share their stories about diagnosis, mastectomy, and breast reconstruction.
