The patient is a young woman who had history of bilateral breast augmentation, but now had indications for mastectomies. (It should be noted that breast augmentation does not put a woman at higher risk for breast cancer.)  Because she had already, in effect, been pre-expanded by her breast implants and because she had a relatively small breast with no ptosis, she was a good candidate for immediate nipple sparing mastectomy with immediate tissue expander placement.  The final result post expander for implant exchange is shown.
