Reconstructive Breast Surgery, also called Breast Reconstruction, is a surgery performed following a mastectomy to treat breast cancer to restore the symmetry, look, shape and feel of the natural breast to near its original shape, size, and appearance. Continued improvements in surgical techniques offer more pleasing results than in the past.
With the more recent development of the DIEP Flap procedure, surgery and recovery times have been greatly reduced, and the surgery is less invasive. The appearance and sensation of the reconstructed breast is also more natural looking and feeling.
The decision to have reconstructive breast surgery is a personal decision and most women who opt for breast reconstruction experience a greater sense of wellness and well-being for themselves and their families.
Dr. Orseck offers both the DIEP Flap surgery and implant breast reconstruction, also known as tissue expander surgery, as the preferred treatment options for his patients.
