I have spoken with a PS that has performed about 700 DIEPs. However, The breast surgeon she now works with has only performed 30 nipple sparing mastectomies (has lost one.) The BS has been in practice for about 15 - 20 years so he is proficient in general mastectomy, but I specifically want the NSM. I don't want to be in the experimental phase of the BS career with respect to NSM. When looking for a BS for NSM, how many successful surgeries should a BS have completed? I'm 37 and have never had cancer. I would really like a great result.
