Women who have experienced physical trauma or disfiguration of the breasts due to breast cancer might feel incredibly self-conscious with their appearance afterwards. They may feel as though the lack of breasts makes them appear more masculine. When women in the Littleton, Colorado area have undergone procedures that have resulted in the removal or disfigurement of the breasts, they often want to work with a cosmetic plastic surgeon to discuss reconstruction options. At Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, we are excited to provide breast reconstruction surgery for women.
What is breast reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction is a specialized procedure available with Dr. Lisa Hunsicker of Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics. This procedure is used to recreate the breast mound after a mastectomy or physical injury and disfigurement. It may also include nipple reconstruction to help women look and feel more confident in their appearance after changes have occurred. The procedure often adds volume to the breasts using tissue transplants or breast implants, depending on the patient’s current state. The procedure can also be used to reconstruct one breast if both breasts were not removed during the mastectomy to ensure symmetry and balance.
Who is a candidate for breast reconstruction?
Any female who may need to repair the breasts following trauma or surgery will want to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lisa Hunsicker to determine if they are a proper candidate for breast reconstruction. Many women who are self-conscious about their appearance and ashamed at their lack of femininity and form will want to discuss solutions such as breast reconstruction with a medical professional who understands. An evaluation and consultation is the first step in the right direction for many of our patients.
