Why Choose Us
At Mercy Medical Group, we pride ourselves on providing patients the most advanced surgical options in breast cancer surgery. Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery is an innovative approach to removing breast cancer, where the 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.
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 procedure, your surgeon will place the incision in a location that is hard to see, so that the scar is not visible when your incision heals.
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. Talk to your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.
