Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery

Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery is an advanced approach to removing breast cancer. Hidden Scar certified surgeons place a patient’s incision in a location that is hard to see, so that the scar is not visible when the patient’s incision heals. As a result, patients have little-to-no visible reminder of the surgery or their cancer.

The advanced Hidden Scar surgical approach enables Hidden Scar certified surgeons to perform nipple sparing mastectomies and lumpectomies with greater precision, efficiency and safety, while improving cosmetic results and quality of life for patients. Ochsner currently has four fellowship-trained surgical oncologists performing the Hidden Scar procedure: Aimee Mackey, MD, Amy Rivere, MD, George Fuhrman, MD and Ralph Corsetti, MD.

The Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner has been designated as Louisiana’s only Center of Excellence by Hidden Scar™. By offering this procedure, the Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center, a part of the Ochsner Cancer Institute, is continuing in the health system’s commitment to bringing the most innovative procedures and therapies to cancer patients in the New Orleans area. Hidden Scar is also available at Ochsner Baptist and Ochsner Medical Center - West Bank Campus.
