Breast Reconstruction

A Renewed You

You may be a candidate for breast reconstruction surgery if you have had a simple mastectomy, total mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy, or subcutaneous mastectomy and are missing breast tissue and skin. The goal of breast reconstruction is to create a breast that looks as normal as possible. A good result makes you look normal in clothes or a bra, and reasonably normal without clothes. Another goal of breast reconstruction surgery is a more positive self image.

Breast reconstruction may be accomplished using customized techniques for each patient. Dr. Howard can make a recommendation for you when you visit for a personal consultation.

Breast reconstruction due to breast cancer is almost always covered by insurance. The specific risks and the suitability of breast reconstruction for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
