Hidden Scar Surgery is an advanced approach to removing breast cancer or your risk of breast cancer that leaves no visible reminder of surgery.
KNOW YOUR OPTIONS. Did you know that most women aren’t informed that the nipple can be preserved during mastectomy? And most women don’t even know that it’s an option?
Where the patient experience matters as much as the care provided.
The Masthead® Elizabeth Pink Surgical Bra® was designed by a doctor who has undergone breast reconstruction and brings comfort to and enhances recovery for patients.
Learn your choices for breast reconstruction.
In Hidden Scar Surgery, your incision is placed in a location that is hard to see, so your scar is not visible when it heals.
Why Hidden Scar Surgery? Scars matter! Breast surgeons are very skilled at removing the cancer or cancer risk, but finding a surgeon who prioritizes your aesthetic outcome is equally important. Studies show that scars from breast surgery serve as a constant visible reminder of cancer or a risk of cancer, and can impact a woman’s psychological and emotional recovery.

The Elizabeth Pink Surgical Bra® is the most comfortable surgical bra on the market today. It features patent-pending side drain openings to accommodate JP drain exit placements, thus eliminating the pinching and pain usually associated with breast surgery recovery.
Soft velcro front closures and shoulder releases make for a perfect, comfortable fit and virtually effortless removal of the bra for laundering and wound care.
JP drain bulbs can be attached to the strategically-placed ribbon loop and ring, eliminating the need for a bulky fanny pack or extra pouches.
