Abstract

• There are currently available techniques of subcutaneous mastectomy with immediate reconstruction that can provide an acceptable aesthetic result with a low incidence of complications. The technique deserves consideration as a therapeutic alternative in the treatment of certain carefully selected patients who are at high risk for the development of breast carcinoma.
