Breast reconstruction is frequently performed after mastectomy to restore a woman’s appearance and body image. Typically, reconstruction of the breast is done in conjunction with a general surgeon who will perform the mastectomy. There are a variety of techniques available to achieve a natural and pleasing result. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Weider will review these with you at the time of your initial consultation. He will help you chose the reconstructive method that is most suitable for you. The techniques used for breast reconstruction often include use of your own tissue as well as tissue expanders and Breast Implants .
Most breast reconstruction is performed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia. Some techniques can be performed as an outpatient while others necessitate a short inpatient stay. You will know ahead of time what to expect in terms of recovery time and any additional surgery that may be anticipated.
