Hidden Scar™ Breast Cancer Surgery is an advanced approach to removing breast cancer. Dr Kennedy is trained in this advanced technique. Our goal is to give you the best surgical treatment and experience.
Breast cancer can be surgically removed with a mastectomy (your surgeon removes all of your breast tissue) or a lumpectomy (your surgeon removes only part of your breast tissue). With a Hidden Scar approach, our surgeons place your incision in a location that is hard to see so the scar is not visible when your incision heals. As a result, you have little to no visible reminder of the surgery or cancer.
The Hidden Scar approach can be performed for a nipple-sparing mastectomy or lumpectomy. Patients who opt for Hidden Scar surgery do not have a higher risk of cancer recurrence than those 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 breast size. You can schedule an appointment to determine if you are a candidate. Call us 518-580-2170.
