Am I a Candidate for Breast Reconstruction?

Apr 26, 2011

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer or if you have already undergone a mastectomy, you are probably a candidate for breast reconstruction. Factors that can affect your candidacy, reconstruction options, and reconstruction results include:

  • The type and stage of your breast cancer
  • The type of surgery used
  • Ongoing cancer treatments
  • General health

The best time to talk to a plastic surgeon like Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso about breast reconstruction is prior to your mastectomy. This will allow Dr. Gayoso to work with your cancer surgeon to plan a breast reconstruction that will give you the safest and most natural-looking results possible.

Dr. Gayoso performs breast reconstruction with breast implants, a tissue flap, a combination of implants, and now offers breast reconstruction using the BRAVA Breast Enhancement and Shaping System. BRAVA breast reconstruction allows you to have reconstructed breasts that look and feel natural using only your own tissue, but without the additional scars and recovery time associated with a tissue flap.

To learn more about breast reconstruction, please call or email Gayoso Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gayoso.
