Abstract

Skin-sparing mastectomy is still in its infancy in Malaysia. The option of skin-sparing mastectomy is rarely given to patients as many general surgeons perform the conventional mastectomy. This could also be compounded by the lack of awareness amongst the local surgeons on the safety, surgical technique and treatment outcome of this relatively new procedure. This case report demonstrates the feasibility of this procedure performed on a Malaysian patient with a comparable outcome of those reported in the Western countries.
