Lumpectomy is regarded as a breast preservation procedure but all too often the “preserved” breast is left smaller and distorted or even overtly deformed. This is particularly true for smaller breasted patients. Procedures pioneered at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery can provide correction of these problems and restore balance and form.
The Center for Restorative Breast Surgery was established to serve as a dedicated center of excellence for women seeking the most advanced methods of breast reconstruction. Scott Sullivan, M.D., FACS; Frank DellaCroce, M.D., FACS; Chris Trahan, M.D., FACS; M. Whitten Wise, M.D. and Craig Blum, M.D. are pioneers in the art of rebuilding breasts lost to cancer, preventive mastectomy, developmental defects, and deformities associated with previous surgery. Their sophisticated microsurgical techniques allow for recreation of the breast with natural tissue while preserving strength and restoring beauty. Together, with Board Certified Breast Surgical Oncologists Alan Stolier, M.D. and Laura Lazarus, M.D., they comprise a group of international leaders in breast cancer surgery options, pioneering groundbreaking procedures including nipple sparing mastectomy, the Stacked DIEP, the gluteal hip flap, and the revolutionary BODY LIFT Flap®. They have performed thousands of breast reconstruction procedures for women facing breast cancer, seeking BRCA risk reduction, or searching for solutions to existing breast deformities. Their Center is tailored and staffed to cater to the needs of clientele who travel from all over the world for their services.
