I've been looking at Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book. She recommends lumpectomy surgery be done not as a horizontal cut (around the breast) but as a slit/wedge (as if the nipple were the center of a wheel - incision should be like a spoke of the wheel). She says this prevents distortion of the nipple. Anyone have any comment?
