Abstract

Implant choice after Nipple Sparing Mastectomy (NSM) is a problematic perioperative issue. In this retrospective study, the authors searched for a correlation between mastectomy weight and implant volume choice after NSM. A mathematical expression of this correlation was found that might help surgeons decide implant volume after NSM.
