A mastectomy is surgery to remove the entire breast. The most common reason for a mastectomy is to treat or prevent breast cancer. Depending on the individual treatment required, it may involve removal of the nipple or lymph nodes. Some patients choose breast reconstruction to restore the shape of their breasts during the initial mastectomy surgery or as a second operation later. A mastectomy may also be called "top surgery" as part of FTM chest masculinization surgery.
