Breast Reconstruction:

Breast reconstruction allows for creating a breast mound to replace a removed breast (usually due to cancer). Techniques vary from autogenous (your own body’s tissue) flaps, to expanders and implants. Consideration to re-shaping the opposite breast with a mastopexy or reduction may also be necessary to better improve symmetry. Breast reconstruction surgery can be performed at the same time as a mastectomy (breast removal), or at a later date. Dr. Silberman can give you a full evaluation at an office consultation. For more information you can go to the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
