Breast Reconstruction in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, PA, FACS is Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale and South Florida’s Source for Plastic Surgery and the Ultimate in Non-Surgical Aesthetic Enhancements, including breast reconstruction.
Breast reconstruction is performed after a woman undergoes a mastectomy, a procedure that is typically done to fight breast cancer. The choice to remove your breast as a result of cancer can often save your life, yet losing a breast has a significant impact on your emotional health. Breast reconstruction helps restore the shape, appearance and size of your removed breast.
Techniques Used for Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction may be performed at the time of your mastectomy, or after you have fully healed from your mastectomy. Dr. Phillips uses several techniques to perform breast reconstruction on his patients in the Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale areas. Breast reconstruction is a highly individualized procedure that is based on your goals, anatomy and preferences for a realistic outcome. Typically, the options include using your own body tissues or possibly a tissue expander (implant) that allows an easier recovery than flap techniques. Dr. Phillips may keep the blood supply from the donor area connected to the flap, or he may connect the flap to the blood supply around your breast area. Other flap techniques, such as the DIEP or latissimus dorsi flap techniques, use donor tissue from your abdomen or back.
Results of Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Breast reconstruction surgery can help you regain your self-confidence, and can help you cope with life after surviving cancer. After your breast reconstruction, you may find that the reconstructed breast has less sensation than your natural breast, and most patients have visible scars on their reconstructed breasts and the donor site. Dr. Phillips works closely with you to determine the best treatment plan, and he discusses post-operative care and anticipated results.
