Revolutionary advances in reconstructive breast surgery in recent years have enabled women to return to their natural shape following mastectomy, while maintaining their self-esteem and well-being. Women now have numerous choices when it comes to whether or not to have reconstructive breast surgery.
Our goal at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery is to make you feel whole again, by restoring your body to the way it was before your breast cancer diagnosis. When reconstructive breast surgery is your choice, it is crucial to your reconstructive outcomes to discuss all options with your surgeon prior to surgery.
There are two basic kinds of breast cancer reconstruction: breast implants and flap reconstruction. Breast implants involve inserting saline or silicone implants under the muscle tissues of the chest, helping to restore the shape of your natural anatomy. Natural tissue flap reconstruction surgery is a microsurgical technique utilizing the patient’s own tissue from other areas of the body to rebuild the breasts to their natural shape.
