Review
• Breast tissue can be shifted to fill in the hole
made by a lumpectomy. This is called volume
displacement.
• A skin-sparing mastectomy aims to keep
as much skin as possible to use for breast
reconstruction.
• Breast reconstruction can be done at any time
if you have DCIS.
• Implants, flaps, or both can be used for breast
reconstruction.
• Nipples can also be reconstructed from other
body parts and darkened with a tattoo.
