Due to medical procedures such as a mastectomy or lumpectomy, many women have breasts that have been removed or surgically altered, affecting the appearance and shape. At Carolina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Saira Saini performs breast reconstruction surgery to restore the natural appearance and shape of the breast and improve self-confidence.
What is Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
In many cases, breast reconstruction surgery can be scheduled either months or years after the removal procedure. Dr. Saini can discuss your surgical options with you during your consultation.
When breast cancer and other illnesses require the removal or surgical alteration of one or both breasts, it can cause women to become self-conscious about the appearance of their chests. Rather than hiding your condition, schedule a consultation with Dr. Saini and find out how breast reconstruction surgery can benefit you. This common procedure has many different options and can recreate natural-looking breasts.
This procedure has advanced to include multiple techniques and can recreate one or both breasts using:
- Saline or silicone implants
- A flap of tissue transplanted from elsewhere on the body
Your procedure will be customized to your needs, preferences, and level of correction, and Dr. Saini will let you know what you can expect during your procedure.
While this procedure can restore the shape and appearance of the breasts, in most cases it cannot restore the sensation to the breast or nipple.
The healing process is different for everyone, but your breasts may be bandaged in order to control post-surgical bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Dr. Saini will advise you on when you can safely return to work and normal activities as well as any aftercare that may be necessary for your incision sites.
The best way to determine whether you qualify for breast reconstruction surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Saini and have your individual condition, preferences, and goals evaluated. If approved for this procedure, a customized surgical plan will be created for you.
