As a double board certified surgeon, Dr. Neil Tanna is an expert in breast aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. While traditional forms of mastectomy require long incisions located directly on the breast, the robotic mastectomy and reconstruction is performed entirely through a small scar located on the side of the chest, far away from the breast.
Dr. Tanna and colleagues pioneered this revolutionary technique that allows the entire surgery to be performed through a very small incision—3-centimeter incision—that is located off of the breast, far away, near the armpit, so when a patient puts their arm down it's completely hidden.
Dr. Tanna and colleagues use the robot to perform the surgery with much smaller incisions that are located far away from the breasts, near the armpit or the bra line. This may result not only in a better aesthetic outcome, but fewer complications, faster recovery, and less pain.
