There are a few different reasons to consider breast reconstruction. Whether patients are suffering from breast cancer or exploring a preventative measure, breast reconstruction can be a way to reconstruct the look and feel of the chest. However, many people who consider breast reconstruction are challenged with the decision to get this type of cosmetic procedure.
In the past, breast reconstruction was well-known for involving multiple surgeries and substandard results including multiple scarring and deformities. However, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vinas, has spent many years developing techniques to bypass this traumatic series of surgeries and has perfected a single-stage immediate reconstruction. And, in most cases, the option of skin and nipple sparing for the most natural results available.
Our surgeon works with your primary mastectomy surgeon to offer a conjoined approach to provide seamless, single-care. Our patients wake up with a fully reconstructed breast and no need for tissue expanders. Our breast reconstruction surgeon uses a revolutionary product called Surgimend. This collagen addition acts as a “protective pocket” for the breast implant.
As the Surgimend is made with collagen, this allows for the breast tissue to eventually grow to incorporate with the product and become totally replaced with collagen from your own body. This reconstruction results in the most natural-looking breasts, sometimes enhancing and improving how the natural breasts were prior to surgery.
Patients who are considering breast reconstruction no longer have to fear disfigured breasts after surgery, and in many cases, patients’ breasts look better than they did before – with little to no visible scars and a fuller, lifted appearance. Dr. Vinas also performs reduced-scar breast reductions & lifts, breast augmentation, and immediate single-stage nipple and skin-sparing reconstructions.
