Mastectomy with immediate reconstruction in BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation carriers


A genetic mutation which is associated with a very large risk of breast cancer (40% to 70%) may be an indication for prophylactic skin-sparing breast removal with subsequent implant reconstruction. After detailed examination and individual evaluation of the risk of breast cancer, a patient may be found eligible for skin-sparing removal of the glandular tissue in both breasts. In this case only the glandular tissue is removed while the skin, nipple and areola are left intact. The space after the removed tissue is filled with a safe implant.


The decision on your surgery is taken during a pre-operative visit when a doctor assesses your eligibility. At the visit the doctor also chooses the treatment and orders necessary tests. The decision is made on the basis of test results and your general condition. Then a convenient date is selected.


The procedure lasts for about 2 to 2.5 hours. You will stay in hospital for about 1 to 2 days.


To what extent will this surgery protect me from breast cancer?

During the surgery about 98% of the glandular tissue, where cancer can develop, is removed. Only a very small number of ducts is left at the top of the nipple. So the risk of breast cancer is reduced to a minimum.

How will I find out if cancer has not already developed in the treated breast?

Each tissue specimen removed during the procedure is sent to the Pathology Laboratory, where it undergoes a detailed histological examination. You will receive a written report on the examination.
