Breast Surgery

Dr. Princess Thomas has an expertise in minimally invasive breast surgery including lumpectomies and nipple sparing mastectomies. She also is hidden scar surgery certified and utilizes oncoplastic breast surgery techniques which helps to ease the emotional impact of breast cancer surgery by rendering little to no visible scarring.  Many women that require mastectomy are great candidates for nipple sparing mastectomy which allows the breast tissue to be removed whilst maintaining the skin as well as nipple areolar complex rendering an excellent cosmetic outcome. Dr. Thomas works with the area’s leading plastic surgeons to plan formal breast reconstruction, using either a patient’s natural tissues, saline or silicone implants or a combination of both. During lumpectomy surgery, Dr. Thomas uses an implantable device called a Biozorb that is an adjunct to oncoplastic surgery in that it helps to fill the space from which the tumor was removed. This device marker allows tissue ingrowth and is effectively degraded in about 12 months time. This framework is a method in which Dr. Thomas often utilizes during the hidden scar/oncoplastic technique to ensure that each patient has a very pleasing cosmetic outcome following surgery.
