SAN ANTONIO -

KSAT 12 anchorwoman Leslie Mouton is doing well after she underwent a mastectomy Monday.

Leslie underwent the procedure in an effort to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer.

The procedure, called DIEP Flap, allows surgeons to remove and reconstruct breasts using abdominal tissue and without cutting through abdominal muscles.

Leslie will be off the air for several weeks while she recovers, but she will be keeping viewers updated on her progress through her diary on KSAT.com.
