Andrea Colton, MD, MPH Certified as a Surgeon for Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery
Lexington, Kentucky, 02/15/2021 – Andrea Colton, MD, MPH at Lexington Clinic’s Center for Breast Care has been recognized as a Hidden Scar trained surgeon for Hidden Scar breast cancer surgery.
Many women diagnosed with breast cancer and needing surgery are unaware of all the surgical options available, including less invasive approaches that can help restore their self-image and allow them to begin the emotional healing process. Dr. Colton and Lexington Clinic Center for Breast Care are expanding options for women in Central Kentucky with an advanced procedure that effectively treats the cancer while optimizing cosmetic results.
Hidden Scar breast cancer surgery allows Dr. Colton to remove the cancerous tissue through a single incision made in a hidden area, preserving the natural shape of the breast while reducing visible scarring. Patients who undergo this approach experience optimal clinical and cosmetic outcomes and are at no higher risk of recurrence than patients who undergo any other surgical technique.
