Breast ReconstructionBreast reconstruction is a cosmetic procedure that rebuilds the size and shape of a breast that has undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction is a common procedure for women healing from breast cancer and can be an important part of a full recovery.

Breast reconstruction must be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place. There are many reasons for women to undergo reconstruction. Body image and self esteem are important parts of the road to recovery, and they are typically enhanced with successful breast reconstruction. Be sure to discuss your mastectomy and breast reconstruction options before you undergo a mastectomy. The timing of your reconstruction will have an effect on surgical options.
