Background Implant-based breast reconstruction (IBR) after nipple-sparing mastectomies (NSM) can have complications that require explantation of a tissue expander or permanent prosthesis. When complications occur, preservation of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) remains critical to ensure aesthetic breast reconstruction. To date, there are minimal data on outcomes for patients experiencing unplanned explantations in IBR after NSM. Objectives To evaluate final reconstructive outcomes for NSM… CONTINUE READING
