What is Hidden Scar Surgery?

Breast cancer surgery with no visible reminders.

Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery is an advanced approach to removing breast cancer. At Stone Oak Breast Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the most advanced surgical options in breast cancer surgery. Our surgeon is trained in advanced surgical techniques, and together, our goal is to give you the best surgical treatment and experience.

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 Approach, our surgeon places your 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 approach can be performed for a nipple sparing mastectomy or a lumpectomy procedure. Patients who undergo the Hidden Scar approach do not have a higher risk of cancer recurrence than patients who undergo any other type of technique. 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. Ask us if you are a candidate for a Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery by calling Stone Oak Breast Surgery at 1-210-545-5455 to schedule a consultation.
