POST-MASTECTOMY RECONSTRUCTION

The female breast is a symbol of femininity and fertility. Unfortunately many are the case where a partially or fully mutilating procedure is necessary in order to save the patient’s life. Plastic Surgery can help alleviate this leftover problem.

The selected technique depends on the preceding operation, the quality of the tissues in the area, the age of the patient and her preferences. We are able to reconstruct the breast using a silicone implant so that it closely resembles a healthy breast. If the skin in the area is not enough we can use a tissue expander, in order to create surplus skin and after that to place the implant. Finally if the situation requires a more radical treatment we can reconstruct the breast using autologous tissues from the back (latissimus dorsi flap) or the abdomen (TRAM flap).

After the procedure we can recreate the nipple using various techniques if needed.
