State of The Art Techniques
Using state of the art techniques developed at our Center, we perform
more than 300 breast reconstructions annually. Years of research
and commitment to refining techniques have allowed us to perfect
superior methods of breast reconstruction that use your own body's
tissue without the need for implants or sacrifice of muscles in
the abdomen. For those without adequate abdominal tissue, other
areas can be borrowed from again without disturbing the body's underlying
Using our advanced techniques,
any breast size can be reconstructed and restored to a natural contour.
Bilateral reconstruction (when both breasts are removed) is especially
amenable to our muscle sparing techniques. Reconstruction can take
place simultaneous to mastectomy, or at a later time.
Our team of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and caring, compassionate
staff will provide support before, during, and after surgery.

We work closley with Breast Surgical oncologists, Alan Stolier,
MD, and Laura Lazarus, MD. They perform the latest techniques of
skin sparing mastectomy & sentinel node mapping. Their offices
are located adjacent to ours in the Breast Center and coordinated
consultations can be arranged.
Immediate Or Delayed Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction may be performed simultaneously to mastectomy
for immediate restoration of volume and shape or at a delayed time
if radiation is planned following mastectomy. The benefit of immediate
reconstruction is that it allows for a skin sparing mastectomy in
those who are appropriate candidates. Our breast cancer surgeons
can consult with you to decide whether immediate of delayed reconstruction
is best for you. If you have already had lumpectomy or mastectomy
it is not too late to undergo restoration of your body and sense
of wholeness. If you have had a previous reconstruction that you
are now unhappy with, you may benefit from replacing your implants
or expanders with your own bodys tissue.
Insurance companies are required by law to pay for all or part of
the cost of breast reconstruction at any time after removal of your
breast tissue, including surgery to another breast for symmetry
if needed. Click here for more
