Aesthetic flat closure (or “flat closure“) is post-mastectomy chest wall reconstruction. After the mastectomy to remove the breast tissue, additional work is often required to smooth out any lumps and bumps and trim any excess skin to restore an optimal chest wall contour with a clean symmetric incision closure. This can often be done at the time of the mastectomy, and most patients who choose flat closure prefer to be “one and done.” I am so honored to be working with Not Putting on a Shirt, to help educate women all over the world about this beautiful choice to consider after a mastectomy. Not Putting on a Shirt is a 501(c)(3) organization advocating for optimal surgical outcomes for women who choose to go flat after mastectomy. For more information click here
