Patients who have had surgery to treat breast cancer have various breast reconstruction options after breast cancer treatment.
Several types of reconstructive surgeries are available, and the process may include multiple procedures to achieve your end result.
Dr. Costa will work with you to make the best decision for your personal health after you have fully recovered and reviewed all of your post-oncologic treatment options.
Many times, implant and flap procedures are used in combination to reconstruct a breast.
In addition, nipple/areola tattooing and fat grafting can be done to help make the reconstructed breast look more like the original breast.
Contralateral procedures, which are procedures on the other, non-affected breast, are an option to help you achieve symmetry with the reconstructed breast.
