Nipple Sparing

The following images are from actual patients treated by Dr. Elisabeth Potter who have undergone Nipple Sparing surgery.


This patient, a 45 year-old female with a history of right breast cancer and the CHEK2 gene mutation, underwent a bilateral nipple sparing mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with DIEP flaps and implant placement. She followed with one revision surgery.

After testing positive for a genetic susceptibility to breast cancer, this patient, age 35, underwent a bilateral nipple sparing mastectomy followed by immediate DIEP flap reconstruction. Later, she added bilateral implants under her breast flaps for augmentation purposes.

This patient, age 52, was diagnosed with a breast cancer genetic susceptibility. She opted for a prophylactic nipple sparing bilateral mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction.
