Breast Repair

Breast cancer and mastectomy can be devastating to a woman.  Breast reconstruction is one of the most rewarding surgeries a plastic surgeon can perform.  There are many different breast reconstruction options, ranging from using your own tissue (TRAM flap, Latissimus flap) to breast implant based reconstruction.  The algorithm for choosing which approach is best is rather complex. For this reason, I tend to spend a great deal of time with women discussing their options, usually on more than one visit.

Some Important Take Home Breast Reconstruction Principles

The best type of breast reconstruction for a woman depends on many factors, including:

  • Type of breast surgery performed to remove the cancer
  • Body habitus of the woman
  • Smoker?  If so, options are more limited.
  • One breast or two breasts need to be reconstructed?
  • Is radiation planned?
  • Desires and expectations
Tissue expansion for breast reconstruction can provide perky breasts. Nipple creation can be performed at a later date, followed by areolar tattooing.
