Breast Reconstruction in Plattsburgh, NY
Breast reconstruction can help restore the look and feel of the breast after a mastectomy. Done at the same time as the mastectomy or at a later date, breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance.
Our skilled plastic surgeons will work with you during this emotional time to help determine the best timing for surgery as well as which breast reconstruction is right for you including:
- Breast implants filled with saline or silicone (or a combination of the two)
- Natural tissue flaps or “Autologous” reconstruction using skin, fat and sometimes, muscle from your own body. Autologous reconstruction also may include an implant.
- A combination of these methods
Major advancements in breast reconstruction mean women no longer have to face long, jagged scars that impact their self-image. Instead, our plastic surgeons use the latest tools and techniques to rebuild a woman’s breast in such a way you feel whole again.
