Hidden Scar breast cancer surgery
Hidden Scar surgery is an advanced approach to removing breast cancer or your risk of breast cancer. Surgeons can use Hidden Scar surgery in either a mastectomy or lumpectomy procedure. With a Hidden Scar procedure, your incision is placed in a location that is hard to see, so your scar is not visible when it heals. This technique is effective in treating the breast cancer as effectively as past traditional breast cancer surgery.
