Abstract

A statistical analysis of 1500 patients who underwent subcutaneous mastectomy is presented. Their data suggest that most patients who were treated by subcutaneous mastectomy had proliferative fibrocystic disease or macrocystic disease, among other high risk factors. The data also suggest that a thoroughly performed subcutaneous mastectomy is an effective means of providing prophylaxis in women who are at high risk for breast cancer. Conclusions were confirmed by many unsolicited comments of patients who underwent the procedure and were grateful to their doctors who performed it.

Presented at the 9th International Congress of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, New York, October 13, 1987
