● A nipple-sparing mastectomy. This procedure is mainly done during a preventative surgery or when the cancer is in the early stages. It will preserve the skin and the areola with an incision on the side of the breast or underneath depending on the position and size.
● A modified radical mastectomy. This surgery will allow the patient to have their chest wall intact. It removes the breast tissue and lymph nodes. The scar is large and visible on the chest.
