Your Breast Reconstruction Options

Breast reconstruction Weinstein Plastic Surgery CenterBreast reconstruction amongst women is typically used for women who have undergone a mastectomy — removal of the breast. Dr. Larry Weinstein performs a New Jersey breast reconstruction procedure either through breast implants or the woman’s own tissue, fat, and muscle.

Round vs. Shaped Implants
When it comes to breast reconstruction via implants, a recent survey revealed that outcomes are quite similar amongst women who had reconstruction via two types of implant shapes: round and the “anatomically shaped” implants. The results of the survey were recently published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal. The researchers surveyed and evaluated patient outcomes in women who had breast reconstruction after mastectomy for breast cancer. The reconstructions were done with round implants amongst 65 women while 63 women had reconstruction with the anatomically shaped implants.

Utilizing the standardized Breast-Q questionnaire, data was collected between one to four years after the reconstruction procedure. The questionnaire evaluated several areas of life satisfaction like the overall outcome of the procedure, physical, psychosocial, and spiritual well-being.

The results of the survey revealed that on a 100-point scale, the average satisfaction score for the overall outcome of the procedure itself was 75 for those with round implants and 77 for shaped implants. As to the appearance of their breasts, the two groups scored at roughly 64.

Breast Reconstruction in New Jersey

If you are considering a New Jersey breast reconstruction, you have the following options with Dr. Weinstein:

Breast Implants – you can choose either saline or silicone implants for the reconstruction. Some women are ideal for one-stage reconstruction while others may prefer to have it done in two phases.

TRAM Flap Surgery – you can opt to have your own muscle and tissue taken from the lower abdominal area to help reconstruct your breasts.

Latissimus Flap Surgery – the technique is similar to that of TRAM Flap but the muscle and tissues used are the ones from the one located beneath the armpit and diagonally across the back.
