Breast reconstruction surgery can help breast cancer survivors regain their confidence after a mastectomy or lumpectomy (partial mastectomy.) Many women feel anxious and/or sad after a mastectomy. By reconstructing their breasts, Dr. Ortiz, Raleigh’s renowned plastic surgeon, has helped hundreds of women reclaim what was taken from them. Whether you choose to have breast reconstruction soon after your mastectomy or years later, Dr. Ortiz can help you feel like yourself again.
Breast augmentation after a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or other trauma to the breast restores the shape, look, and feel of breasts, aiding the healing process for many women. Dr. Ortiz will determine the breast reconstruction plan that is best for you by discussing your expectations and examining the amount of breast tissue that was removed during your initial surgery, your overall health, and other risk factors. Breast reconstruction methods vary but for patients that have had full mastectomies, the breast is rebuilt using an artificial implant. Patients that have had partial mastectomies, or lumpectomies, typically have their breasts rebuilt using tissue taken from other parts of the body. Many times, these techniques may be combined based on the patient’s case. Breast reconstruction can be performed shortly after your mastectomy or lumpectomy, in which case Dr. Ortiz will discuss your options with your surgeon. A breast reconstruction may also be performed weeks, months, or years later with no complications.
