I would like to know details about donut mastoplexy procedure. My sister has breast cancer and she is going to have this operation very soon. I don’t know anyone who did this donut mastoplexy before. What does term “donut” means? Is traditional lumpectomy better option?

The donut mastopexy is a type of lumpectomy which allows surgeons to remove an entire segment of the breast through an incision at the edge of the areola. The final scar circles the areola and is virtually hidden and that give better cosmetic results. The term "donut" refers to the way that surgery is done, a circular incision is made around the areola, and the surgeon then separates breast tissue from both the overlying skin and the underlying chest muscles.
