Breast reconstruction surgeon Dr. Ghavami uses modern surgical technology to construct a natural-looking breast after mastectomy (breast removal) for cancer or other diseases. The procedure is commonly begun and sometimes completed immediately following mastectomy, so that the patient wakes with a new breast mound. Alternatively, breast reconstruction may begin years after mastectomy depending on timing of radiation and/or chemotherapy regimens.
Breast Reconstruction Considerations Before Surgery
- Your current condition in conjunction with your overall health
- What stage your breast cancer is in and whether or not you are ready for additional surgery.
- The size of your breast.
- How much tissue is available for the breast reconstruction
- If breast reconstruction is needed on both breasts, as opposed to just one.
- Related costs, including insurance, for breast reconstruction
- Depending on the current breast, the size of your new implant.
- The ability and limitations of matching the other breast
