Robotic breast surgery involves using the robot to perform nipple-sparing mastectomy and breast reconstruction. Traditional (open) nipple-sparing mastectomy and breast reconstruction require incisions on the breast. Robotic nipple sparing mastectomy with robotic breast reconstruction is an innovative form of breast surgery that utilizes robotic technology to perform the surgery. By using the robot, the incisions can be much smaller and be placed off the breasts, far away near the armpit or the bra line.
Benefits of robotic breast surgery
Robotic nipple sparing mastectomy with robotic breast reconstruction is an innovative and advanced technique, intended to improve aesthetic results, patient satisfaction, minimize invasiveness, and overcome the technical limitations experienced with the traditional open technique.
By using the robot, the surgeon can overcome problems associated with the traditional open technique such as limited internal mobility, inconsistent views of the surgical site, and poor dissection angles, which makes it difficult to reach certain areas.
The robotic system enables the surgeon to remove the breast tissue with precision and accuracy and perform simultaneous breast reconstruction. This allows for full preservation of the breast skin and nipple areola complex, without any visible scar on the breast tissue.
