What if I don’t want breast reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction isn’t for everyone. If you decide not to have it, we’ll provide options to help you feel more comfortable and simulate the look of a natural breast under clothing. These may include breast prostheses and forms, or bras fitted especially for you.
Types of breast reconstruction
We perform more than 250 breast reconstructions every year. Our breast reconstruction plastic surgeons offer a full spectrum of options and specialize in microsurgery techniques that use a patient’s own tissue for reconstruction without removing any muscle.
We also use oncoplastic reconstruction, which combines traditional lumpectomy with standard breast reduction. Our surgeons can preserve the breast and provide a better cosmetic outcome after chemotherapy or radiation therapy is completed.
We will explain all the options and the risks and benefits of each to help you feel like yourself again.
