BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

 

 

Procedure of the Month

 

Breast Reconstruction 

When a breast, or a portion of a breast  must be removed due to cancer or other breast disease, this can be an extremely traumatic and painful time for patients to undergo. Thankfully, breast reconstruction enables a patient to restore her self-image.

 

The goal of breast reconstruction is to create a natural looking breast. There are several different methods of reconstruction to acheive this goal; the type of reconstructive procedure depends on the preference of the patient and the shape of her body.

 

The two most common procedures are tissue expansion  and TRAM flap. In the tissue expansion procedure, a balloon- like expander is inserted under the skin and chest muscle and periodically filled with saline to gradually expand the tissue to eventually accommodate  a permanent implant. In the TRAM flap, a portion of the abdominal muscle and skin is repositioned to the chest wall creating a blood supply to nourish the reconstructed breast.

 

Breast Reconstruction surgery is always covered by insurance. A newly reconstructed breast will have a normal appearance and a youthful contour and insurance will also cover surgery to lift, enlarge or reduce the other breast to create a symmetrical pair.
