About Breast Reconstruction Surgery 

We understand how important a natural-looking, attractive reconstruction can be to restoring your comfort and sense of self after treatment. That is why our expert surgeons have developed precise techniques to achieve results that can be as equally aesthetic as elective cosmetic breast surgery

 

We will not only work to restore your breast size, shape, beauty and contour—we are often able to create the ideal breasts for you. You may be able to opt for breast augmentation, reduction, lift, or nipple position correction at no additional cost as part of your reconstruction. We encourage you to choose your own goal for reconstruction and will help you explore all of your options in detail with you

all breast cancer patients are considered eligible for reconstruction, which is commonly covered by insurance. Whether you are choosing a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or radiation therapy, you can pursue the best treatment option for your diagnosis with confidence and still have the opportunity to define the way you look and feel afterward

Risks of Breast Reconstruction Surgery

With years of experience, our surgeons take extra precautions for a safe, successful procedure to minimize the risk of complications and side effects. Breast reconstruction risks and possible complications may include, but are not limited to :

  • Bleeding

  • Fluid collection

  • Infection

  • Delayed healing

  • Excessive scar tissue

  • Anesthesia problems

The most common complication of breast implant reconstruction surgery is capsular contracture, which occurs if the scar or capsule around the implant begins to tighten. Capsular contracture can change the appearance and hardness of the breast reconstruction and can sometimes cause pain. Occasionally, this complication can be severe enough to require a second operation

Breast reconstruction does not increase the chance of breast cancer coming back, nor does reconstruction make it harder to monitor cancer recurrence
