Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Breast cancer that results in lumpectomy or mastectomy can disfigure the breasts, resulting in one or both breasts with scar tissue and loss of symmetry. There are also other types of disease, congenital defects or trauma that can impact the appearance of the breasts. Dr. John Anastasatos is a board certified plastic surgeon who offers breast reconstruction surgery to restore the beauty and shape of the breasts due to disfigurement.
Breast Cancer Reconstruction Surgery
Breast cancer is one of the top reasons we see patients for breast reconstruction surgery at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills. Our patients are concerned with the appearance of their breasts after a lumpectomy or mastectomy and want solutions to restore their breast shape and size. Breast reconstruction can involve a variety of surgical techniques, depending on the amount of damage and the desired results by the patient. These include:
- Implant reconstruction
- Flap reconstruction
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
If only one breast is affected, there are a few different options. A flap or autologous reconstruction of the breast can be used to recreate the shape of the breast. If there is a size or asymmetry issue, the other breast can be reduced in size to match the newly reconstructed breast. Another option is using a breast implant to match the reconstructed breast to the other existing breast.
If both breasts have been altered by disease or trauma, either flap reconstruction or implant reconstruction can be used. In some cases, it may be a combination of both. Dr. Anastasatos considers all the possible options to create the best results for the patient based on their wishes, body shape and other factors.
