Summary

This secondary analysis of the Mastectomy Reconstruction Outcomes Consortium study aims to compare Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) of women who underwent immediate implant-based breast reconstruction after receiving nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) versus mastectomy with subsequent nipple reconstruction. Of the 600 women in the study, 47.7% underwent NSM. Analysis of BREAST-Q scores showed no significant differences in satisfaction with breast, psychosocial well-being, physical well-being or sexual well-being. Mastectomy type was not a significant predictor of complications or reconstructive failure.
