Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Emile Brown offers a variety of breast reconstruction options to patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
What is Breast Reconstruction?
After a diagnosis of breast cancer, breast reconstruction surgery can help rebuild a breast that has been fully or partially extracted. This type of surgery is highly customized, and may include techniques such as:
- Breast implant reconstruction
- Fat transfer
- Flap reconstruction, which involves using donor tissue from another area of the body
- Nipple reconstruction
Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
For many women, the only thing more horrifying than suffering from cancer or another condition is the loss of their breast(s). These ladies may experience a decrease in self-esteem and develop a poor body image because of it. Breast reconstruction can give women a new outlook on life by helping them feel more feminine and beautiful.
Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Reconstruction?
Our surgeons work closely with your team of breast cancer physicians to determine if you are a good candidate for breast reconstruction. This ensures that breast reconstruction does not interfere with any other treatments you might be having.
How are Breast Reconstruction Procedures Performed?
During your consultation, we will examine your breasts to determine the best reconstruction method for you. Only then will we be able to discuss your procedure in greater detail.
