Become Whole Again with Breast Reconstruction After Mastectomy
Losing one or both breasts to cancer or other trauma is a devastating reality for many women; breast reconstruction is an opportunity to restore and rebuild breasts to a normal, or desired, shape and size.
Breast Reconstruction Procedure by Dr. Eric Weiss
Dr. Weiss begins your initial consultation by reviewing before and after photos of other breast reconstruction patients, and will help you select the level of correction for you to achieve your desired look. All applicable costs will also be reviewed during this confidential appointment.
New medical techniques and advances allow for some breast reconstructions to occur immediately following mastectomy, in the hospital setting. Dr. Weiss can also perform delayed breast reconstruction surgery—after the mastectomy has healed—in.
The recovery time following breast reconstruction surgery is completely dependent on the specific conditions of each individual patient, and consequently, will vary. A clearer understanding of your post-operative recovery period will be explained once Dr. Weiss has the opportunity to evaluate and discuss your case at the initial consultation.
Dr. Weiss provides every patient with the information to make an informed decision about breast reconstruction. After struggling with the traumatic circumstances associated with mastectomy, breast reconstruction:
- Creates a breast that comes close to a natural appearance and feel
- Eliminates the need for any prosthetic devices
- Allows for better fit in clothing
- Rebuilds confidence
