A simple mastectomy is one of the types of mastectomy procedure, in which almost all of one’s breast is removed, including areola, nipple, skin and fat tissue. However, unlike modified radical mastectomy, in simple mastectomy, doctors do not remove the lymph nodes. Breast removal surgery through a simple mastectomy is usually performed as a breast cancer treatment, when there is no possibility to conduct other, more conservative treatment.
Candidates for simple mastectomy are women with breast cancer which is too big to be resected through segmental mastectomy but didn’t spread to lymph nodes. Doctors choose among types of mastectomy according to individual patient’s case.
During simple mastectomy surgery, doctors perform a cut and proceed to remove outer and inner elements of patient’s breast. Then, the cut is closed and the mastectomy recovery process may begin. Additionally, simple mastectomy may take a form of unilateral mastectomy (when only one breast is removed) or double mastectomy procedure (used sometimes as a precaution against the danger of breast cancer).
Patient is required to stay 1 night in the hospital
Between 2 to 3 hours
1 to 2 weeks
Simple mastectomy recovery time may, as it is in the case of similar modified radical mastectomy, take up to three weeks. Recovery after simple mastectomy procedure may be even longer if patient decides for breast reconstruction surgery right after the simple mastectomy.
