A breast cancer diagnosis and its accompanying treatment is often completely overwhelming, especially if it entails losing one or both breasts to mastectomy. These physical changes involved can be the cause of an extreme loss of confidence; however, it does not have to be a permanent condition. At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeon, Mark Pinsky, MD, offers a number of procedures that can rebuild the breasts using healthy body tissue, fat grafting, breast implants, or a combination of treatments. By utilizing advanced surgical techniques and innovative technologies, we can help restore the breasts with some of the most natural-looking results possible.
Breast reconstruction surgery can take place alongside mastectomy or it can be delayed until after completing cancer treatment. There are numerous surgical options available to recreate the breasts, including single-stage breast reconstruction and flap repair. While each individual’s unique circumstances and expressed goals will determine which approach can provide the greatest opportunity for success, and during your initial consultation we will fully discuss your aspirations.
One of the most common requests we hear is the desire to regain a sense of wholeness after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. While breast reconstruction is not a simple procedure, we emphasize both aesthetic and functional qualities designed to achieve beautiful, symmetrical, and enduring results with the potential to not only uplift but empower you.
