Breast Cancer Reconstruction
Goals of breast reconstruction include;
- Restore form and function following lumpectomy or mastectomy.
- Emphasis is placed on superior breast aesthetics.
- Giving you the options you deserve.
Restoration of form and function is one of the tenants of plastic surgery and breast reconstruction, specifically, epitomizes this mantra. Every woman has the right to reconstruction following an oncologic breast procedure. Breast cancer can be removed from the area of occurrence only (lumpectomy) or with the entirety of the breast (mastectomy). The procedure that is best for you depends on a number of factors and will be a decision made between you and your breast cancer surgeon. Regardless, as a plastic surgeon my philosophy is that the breast and patient should be restored to whole.
In order to ensure that my patients receive the best care, I have extensively researched and published articles on breast cancer and reconstructive techniques. Furthermore, I co-invented a product, FlexHD® Pliable MAX, manufactured by MTF Biologics and used in breast reconstruction around the world. The impetus for this invention was a desire to help surgeons and their patients achieve a more consistently beautiful reconstructive result. My goal is to always create an aesthetically pleasing breast so that my patients feel confident and rejuvenated.
