Reconstructive Breast Surgery: What To Know

Reconstructive breast surgery is a procedure that restores a woman’s breast after it has been surgically removed due to cancer or an accident. It can also be done prophylactically, essentially as a preventative measure. Reconstruction is typically performed at the same time as the initial surgery, however, it may be delayed to allow for enough time to pass to ensure cancer has been eradicated. Reconstruction may be achieved through tissue expansion, when no tissue remains or with implants. Here at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Tomer Avraham, MD, FACS, is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon New York whose focus is to assist patients to regain themselves, in appearance and function through reconstructive breast surgery in Manhattan. Let’s examine everything there is to know about reconstructive breast surgery and how it helps patients on a daily basis.

Dr. Avraham has acquired extensive experience as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon as the Director of Breast Reconstruction at Yale Medical Group, with specific expertise in mastectomy reconstruction and oncoplastic surgery which includes tissue and implant-based techniques. Mastectomies are the process of surgically removing one or both breasts in order to mitigate the spread of cancerous growths. We understand that this is an emotionally devastating experience, but the outcome of successful treatment will make this process well and worth it. 

This treatment has helped millions of women overcome their struggles with cancer, but it doesn’t stop there. Reconstructive breast surgery makes it possible to restore a woman’s bust while boosting their confidence and self-esteem. The team at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery is proud to have helped many patients around the world, and with Dr. Avraham’s extensive experience, we have simplified this process for our patients.

Breasts are considered by many a fundamental part of a woman’s femininity. It’s an integral part of womanhood and it impacts how many ladies feel about their body image. The emotional effects from a modified appearance can be damaging following an initial cancer diagnosis. Reconstruction seeks to help women regain a sense of normalcy. One of the most commonly performed procedures from a plastic and reconstructive surgeon New York is implant placement. This procedure relies on silicone or saline-filled implants to replace lost breast tissue, enhancing the appearance of the breasts.

Direct To Implant Breast Procedure

Direct to implant breast procedures are effective techniques for women that have undergone a mastectomy. It’s a one-step solution that involves placing an implant in the treated area right after surgery, without the need for a flap, graft, or tissue expander. Direct implant gives patients the opportunity to experience recreation of the breast mound and is emotionally beneficial for patients. During the procedure, the implant is put on the chest wall behind the muscle, which closely resembles the process of breast augmentations. Patients will have the option of silicone or saline implants, amongst many other choices. You can discuss the details with Dr. Avraham once you’re ready to move ahead.
