The 411 on Reconstructive Breast Surgery


Reconstructive Breast SurgeryUndergoing a mastectomy in order to rid your breasts and your body of cancerous cells and tissues is a life altering decision. And although this life altering decision can and likely will save your life, it can leave you as a woman feeling a bit deflated both physically and emotionally. If you have recently undergone a mastectomy and your breasts are either completely gone or they are crooked then you may want to consider getting breast reconstructive surgery done by Dr. Larry Weinstein. Read on to learn more about this life changing and restorative procedure.

Are You a Good Candidate?
Most women who have undergone either a mastectomy or a double mastectomy are going to be considered a good candidate for reconstructive breast surgery. During a mastectomy, although the surgeon will want to try to maintain as much of the breast as possible, the main goal is to get rid of any and all cancerous cells and tissues in the breast, oftentimes leaving women with less than ideal breasts afterwards. Simply schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein in order to determine what can be done for your breasts.

What Are Your Options?
The great thing about reconstructive breast surgery is that there are several options for you to choose from including the following:

Breast Implant: One of the more popular things to get when getting reconstructive breast surgery is implants in both breasts— this will help to give you symmetrical breasts that are full and have the shape that you desire.

  • TRAM Flap Surgery: Another option that you can choose is TRAM flap surgery that uses extra skin and muscle from your abdominal region in order to reconstruct your breasts without the use of a breast implant.
  • Latissimus Flap Surgery: Just like TRAM surgery, Latissimus surgery uses excess skin and muscle from your body in order to reconstruct your breasts without an implant. However, this surgery uses the area of your skin along the back of your arm and back.
