Once you have scheduled a consultation, it will be possible for me to provide you with more specific details regarding the surgery.
Breast Reconstruction is a type of surgery that rebuilds the breast mound so that it closely resembles the original size and shape of the tissue. There are multiple types of surgical techniques used in Breast Reconstruction depending on your needs.
Because the type of technique required for each Breast Reconstruction case is determined on a case-by-case basis, it’s not possible to give a general recovery time, and some cases may require multiple procedures.
Are You a Candidate for Breast Reconstruction?
This procedure can be rewarding for women who have undergone a mastectomy and cancer treatment. It is strongly encouraged that candidates be patients interested in the physical and emotional benefits for themselves and not just to meet the expectations or desires of another.
Potential candidates for breast reconstruction are those that are capable of coping with their diagnosis and the necessary treatment, are not experiencing additional illnesses or conditions that could impair their recovery, and those who have realistic goals for their reconstructive surgery.
There are several potential advantages to breast reconstruction surgery, including benefits both physical and emotional. Some of the benefits that patients experience include:
- Restore size, shape, and symmetry to your breasts
- Remove the need for an external prosthetic implant
- Improve self-esteem and confidence
Before & After Photos
While Breast Reconstruction can rebuild your breast and restore size and symmetry, results are highly variable on a case-by-case basis. Surgery scars may remain, and a reconstructed breast will not have the same sensation and feel as the breast it replaces.
