Dr. Ali Sadeghi specializes in precise surgical removal of breast tumors and tissue. The skin-sparing mastectomy is one procedure that may be an option for women fighting breast cancer.

During this procedure, as much breast skin as possible is spared. The result is an envelope of skin that can be wrapped around the reconstructive flap, aiding in a natural-looking reconstructive result.

The procedure is commonly combined with immediate DIEP flap breast reconstruction. When the nipple is also able to be spared, the procedure is called a nipple-sparing mastectomy.
