If you have undergone a mastectomy or plan to undergo a mastectomy as a treatment for breast cancer, you may want to consider a breast reconstruction procedure. Breast reconstruction is a highly effective method to restore the shape and appearance of your breast following mastectomy or other invasive surgical procedures, such as lumpectomy, or congenital deformities.
Breast reconstruction is designed to restore breast shape, size and volume so that you can once again enjoy a more balanced and natural-looking figure. There are several types of breast reconstruction available, including reconstruction with breast implants and reconstruction using your own body tissues.
When planning your breast reconstruction procedure, we will consider a number of factors in order to determine which type of reconstruction is best for you, including:
• Your overall health
• Any existing health concerns or medical conditions
• Your breast size
• The size and location of your breast cancer
• The extent of your breast cancer surgery
• Any additional treatments required for your cancer
• The amount of tissue available for reconstruction
Dr. Natalie Driessen will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that will produce the results you desire.
