Breast
Reconstruction

With our history so deeply rooted in emergency care and reconstruction, Plastic Surgery of New York is highly specialized in helping women with reconstructive breast surgery.

Breast reconstruction is commonly performed after a mastectomy or lumpectomy (i.e., partial breast removal). We understand that this can be an incredibly challenging and emotional time for our patients. Our expert physicians can help alleviate your concerns and offer a number of treatments to rebuild the breast.

We work closely with you and your breast surgeon to discuss all of your treatment options. In many cases, we even partner with your breast surgery team to perform reconstruction at the same time as your mastectomy procedure.

Advantages

  • Regain your balanced proportions when wearing your favorite bras and swimsuits
  • Permanently enhance your breast shape
  • Get rid of your external prosthesis and never worry again about the symmetry of your breasts

Q&A

 

We offer a variety of approaches to breast reconstruction, including implant-based options and tissue-based options, which involves using skin, fat, and muscle from your own body.

For women with larger breasts who are undergoing a lumpectomy, Plastic Surgery of New York can also perform a breast reduction at the same time as your surgery to improve your overall symmetry.

It’s important to keep in mind that you will feel some pain, but that it can be managed with pain medication. You will feel an improvement each week, and feel back to normal around 6 weeks.
Most women are able to go back to normal day-to-day activities within a few weeks
