A person who has undergone a total (simple) mastectomy without breast reconstruction

During a total mastectomy, the surgeon removes the breast tissue, nipple, areola and skin. This procedure also is known as a simple mastectomy. Other mastectomy procedures may leave some parts of the breast, such as the skin or the nipple. Surgery to create a new breast is optional. It may be done at the same time as mastectomy surgery or it can be done later.
