What to Expect

During the biopsy procedure using the BD EleVation™ Breast Biopsy System, you will be positioned as comfortably as possible while making sure your doctor has ultrasound visualization of the area to be biopsised. You will be asked to remain as still as possible throughout the biopsy to help ensure the suspicious area does not move.

Your doctor will then numb an area in your breast with local anesthetic. Then, your doctor will make a tiny (4-5 mm) skin nick. The BD EleVation™ Probe will be inserted through the incision and tissue samples will be removed. In most cases, you won’t need stitches and a simple bandage is all you’ll need. Once the biopsy is complete, you will be free to resume your normal activities.
