Watch as surgeons Alan Stolier, M.D., F.A.C.S., Karl Ordoyne, M.D., F.A.C.S., and Frank DellaCroce, M.D., F.A.C.S. of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery explain why women who test positive for a high-risk mutation may choose prophylactic mastectomy and reconstruction, and how breast and plastic surgeons work together for the best cosmetic outcome. You'll also meet Lorell and Kerry and hear how they made the decision to have prophylactic mastectomy.

I am BRCA2 positive... 54 year old lady and generally very healthy. My last mammo just came back showing "suspicious malignancy" calcifications. My BiRad is 4 out of 6. How much lower is my risk if I decide to do a double mastectomy but with nipple sparing?
