San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) October 11, 2017
PRMA Plastic Surgery | Center for Advanced Breast Reconstruction announced today it has been recognized as a center for Hidden Scar™ Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction surgery.
PRMA is expanding breast reconstruction options for women and is among the first in the area to perform this advanced approach to breast reconstruction that hides scars, minimizing the daily emotional reminder of surgery.
With Hidden Scar™ Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction surgery, PRMA surgeons, and several breast surgeons on the team, are able to perform a mastectomy through a small single incision in the natural crease beneath the breast, called the inframammary fold. This preserves the natural shape of the breast while reducing visible scarring. When combined with nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction, patients experience optimal clinical and cosmetic outcomes with little to no visible scarring.
“It is our passion to provide patients with today’s most advanced breast reconstruction techniques. Reducing the amount of visible scaring following breast cancer surgery is a wonderful advancement for the women we serve” says PRMA surgeon Dr. Gary Arishita.
Performing breast surgery through a smaller incision requires consistent illumination throughout the surgical cavity, so surgeons can clearly see and effectively remove the tumor.
PRMA surgeons are using Invuity’s Intelligent Photonics™ technology to improve their visibility during advanced procedures – enabling them to perform complex, in-demand surgeries with greater confidence, and give more women access to transformative options.
