The recent development and popularity of skin-sparing mastectomy undoubtedly stems from the fact that it proposes an autogenous tissue reconstruction of high quality. Several non-randomized studies suggest that skin sparing mastectomy does not add a risk of local recurrence. Although there is still a little scepticism, skin sparing mastectomy has become an integral part of the surgical armamentarium in case of mastectomy for small or in situ cancer and for prophylactic mastectomy in high-risk patients. Some Authors have suggested that the skin sparing mastectomy provides favorable results also in case of more advanced tumors in comparison with the standard mastectomy.
