Breast Reconstruction
Savannah GA

Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure aimed at restoring the shape and symmetry of the breast following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. These surgeries are often performed in response to breast cancer treatment. Some individuals also opt for preventative mastectomy in cases of high cancer risk.

Restore Your Confidence

Many individuals opt for breast reconstruction to regain a sense of wholeness and femininity after breast surgery. Common motivations include:

  • Restoring breast shape and silhouette

  • Ensuring clothes fit as desired

  • Improving body image affected by breast loss resulting from breast cancer treatments such as a mastectomy or lumpectomy

Surgical methods like tissue flaps, breast implants, or a combination of both are utilized to create natural-looking results. The primary goal is to restore the breasts as closely as possible to their original size, symmetry, and appearance.

Breast reconstruction options generally fall into two categories: implant-based reconstruction, which uses implants to recreate breast size and shape, and fat grafts, which involve transferring fat from other parts of the body to form a new breast. Procedures may also adjust the opposite breast for symmetry.

What to Expect

The Procedure

Performed in an operating room under anesthesia. Incisions may be made near the nipple or in the armpit to faciliate reshaping, insert placement, or fat transfer.

Aftercare

Tubes may be used to reduce swelling and a surgical bra is provided for support. Our surgeon's recovery guidelines must be followed diligently.

The Cost

Breast reconstruction may be partially or fully covered by insurance depending on individual circumstances and will be discussed during consultation.
