About Breast Reconstruction
- Breast Reconstruction Candidates: A number of different considerations contribute to your candidacy for different types of breast reconstruction.
- Immediate vs. Delayed Reconstruction: The choice of immediate vs. delayed reconstruction can be based not only on your health and anatomy, but also your personal preference.
- Breast Reconstruction with Implants: Implant-based reconstruction is the most common method used for reconstructive breast surgery.
- Muscle/Flap Reconstruction: Your own muscle and fatty tissue can be used to recreate a natural-looking breast shape, particularly when compared with your existing breast.
- Lumpectomy Reconstruction via Fat Grafting: Following a lumpectomy, fat grafting can help correct noticeable indentations or other abnormalities in your breast contours.
- 3D Nipple Tattooing: Restore the appearance of your nipples and areolas after breast reconstruction. Made of pigment skillfully deposited below the surface of the skin, these tattoos are incredibly natural-looking.
