The joy and relief of surviving breast cancer may be tinged by a sense of loss after a mastectomy, double-mastectomy, or lumpectomy. If you have lost a breast or breasts through breast cancer surgery, a breast reconstruction in Los Angeles can improve your self-confidence and help to ease your recovery, so that you can look (and begin to feel) like yourself again.

Choosing Breast Reconstruction

When breasts are removed through surgery, some breast cancer survivors from Los Angeles and Beverly Hills feel that breast reconstruction will help them to feel physically and emotionally “whole” again. If you are interested in breast reconstruction, you may want to consider beginning the reconstruction process at the same time as your mastectomy or, if your breast has already been surgically removed, you may begin the reconstruction process during what is called a “delayed” reconstruction.

Approaches to Breast Reconstruction

Your anatomy is unique, so Dr. Tamburrino will create a customized treatment plan specifically for you. There are different ways in which your breast reconstruction can be accomplished:

Implant Based Techniques: A breast implant (either saline or silicone) can be used to create the breast mound. This is often combined with flap techniques or tissue expansion.

Natural Tissue Techniques: These procedures (such as TRAM flap, DIEP flap, SGAP flap, and latissiumus dorsi flap) use muscle, fat and skin from other parts of your body such as your abdomen, buttock, or back to recreate a breast mound. The donor tissue is often tunneled to the mastectomy site and remains attached to its original blood supply. In many cases, a flap technique may be combined with a breast implant.
