Breast Reconstruction Chevy ChaseAugust 29, 2013
Dealing with the loss of one or both breasts due to cancer or other illness is a loss no one can prepare you for. Suddenly, something you’d taken for granted would always be there, isn’t and just as with the loss of a limb or loved one, you grieve. The healing process is a slow one. Everyone deals with the loss differently and finds their own way to move forward in life. For some, that means Reconstructive Breast Surgery.
Our Plastic Surgeons consider it the one of the most rewarding procedures to perform because of the opportunity to give women something of themselves back and watch their transformation as they heal and the self-confidence that grows from it. Every patient that comes in for a consultation presents unique goals, desires and challenges which are then discussed in detail with the patient to design the most ideal coarse of treatment for them.
There are three kinds of reconstructive procedures: Implant-based reconstruction, TRAM flap reconstruction and Latissimus flap reconstruction. If you are interested in discussing your reconstructive options, we invite you to schedule a consultation today.
