Indications: After surgical removal of the breast for disease/ cancer, birth deformities, or trauma.

Procedure: The surgery is usually staged, depending on the circumstances. When cancer is involved, it is usually performed at the time of the mastectomy.  It can also be performed in a delayed fashion. The most common approach is using a tissue expander, which gradually stretches the skin and muscle into the breast shape. An acellular graft material may be used to aid in the shaping of the breast mound. Once the breast is shaped over several months, Stage 2, a permanent breast implant is inserted. Surgery on the opposite breast may be recommended to improve symmetry of the breasts. Stage 3 involves creating a nipple and areolar.The use of skin and muscle flaps is also an option for reconstruction of the breast.

Post Operative: Most patients are observed for 1 or 2 nights after the first procedure. Many patients can return to work in 2-4 weeks. Pain is easily controlled with moderate pain medication.  These procedures are coordinated with concomitant chemo therapy and radiation, if required.

Risks and Complications: will be discussed at the time of your consultation.
