Dr. Wachsmuth is trained in and performs Hidden Scar® Breast Cancer Surgery, an advanced approach to removing breast cancer. Whether a lumpectomy or a mastectomy, Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery is an effective technique in treating and removing breast cancer.
With Hidden Scar Surgery, incisions are placed in hard to see locations so that when the incision heals, it is not as easily seen. Dr. Wachsmuth believes women should not be reminded daily of their fight with cancer when looking in a mirror.
Studies show that breast surgery scars impact a woman's body image, self-confidence, and intimacy. Less visible scars can improve a woman's psychological and emotional recovery and quality of life after surgery.
