Instituto Oncologico Veneto and GC Aesthetics® Italy Expand the Frontiers of Breast Care with FixNip™ NRI

Instituto Oncologico Veneto and GC Aesthetics® Italy Expand the Frontiers of Breast Care with FixNip™ NRI

Today, we shine a spotlight on the exceptional achievements of the renowned Instituto Oncologico Veneto (IOV) in Italy. Ranked among the top 10 Breast Centers in the country for the number of mastectomies performed annually. Instituto Oncologico Veneto has embraced the innovative FixNip™ NRI by GC Aesthetics® for the Nipple-Areola Complex (NAC) reconstruction. This remarkable milestone bolsters the reputation and credibility of FixNip™ in Italy but also sets a precedent for surgical excellence in breast care in Europe. 

 

Expanding the Boundaries of Breast Care 

 

The surgical duo responsible for the groundbreaking success in Nipple-Areola Complex reconstruction are the esteemed Dr. Marchet and Dott.ssa Toffanin. They have propelled FixNip™ into the spotlight by announcing that all interested women can undergo NAC reconstruction with it at their hospital. This announcement marks a significant moment in the Italian medical community, as Instituto Oncologico Veneto emerges as a leading institution dedicated to offering the most advanced and effective solutions for breast surgery 

"After mastectomy for breast cancer with removal of the areola-nipple complex, the field of breast reconstruction expands with a new device for nipple reconstruction. It is a silicone implant that is placed under the skin at the site of the original nipple: it is basically an alternative to surgical reconstruction with a local skin flap. The technique used involves the creation of a small subcutaneous pocket within which the nipple implant is placed." 

- Dr. Alberto Marchet, director of the team of the UOC Breast Surgery 1  

 

Raising the Current Standard  

 

FixNip™ NRI introduces a comprehensive solution for long-lasting projection and reconstruction of the Nipple-Areola Complex. The attractiveness of FixNip™ NRI lies not only in its design but also in its simplicity and efficiency, requiring a minimally invasive subcutaneous approach. This makes it an office-based procedure that can be completed in approximately 15 minutes on average. With this, GC Aesthetics® solidifies its belief that all women deserve to regain their confidence and embrace their post-operative journey with renewed self-assurance and ease. 

"The results are visible about eight days after placement, but the patient feels the sensation of nipple saliency almost immediately. All this determines a high level of personal satisfaction for the woman and represents an important psychological contribution toward the resumption of total psychophysical normality. The procedure is proposed in selected cases but can be performed after any reconstruction procedure and can also be performed in women undergoing chemotherapy." 

- Dr. Alberto Marchet, director of the team of the UOC Breast Surgery 1 

As we celebrate this achievement, we anticipate even more significant advancements on the horizon, as medicine continues to evolve and improve the lives of countless women affected by breast cancer.
