Patients who are established to carry the genes associated with increased risk of breast cancer may opt to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer in the future by undergoing a risk-reducing mastectomy. The operation removes all of the breast tissue while aiming to spare the skin and nipple. This is performed allowing immediate reconstruction with implants or with the patient’s own tissues with acceptable cosmetic results.
