Battling breast cancer is a difficult and exhausting journey. Winning the battle is incomparable.
Our Breast Reconstructive procedure can help you regain your womanly appearance while erasing some of the physical scars left behind from a full or partial mastectomy. The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act requires insurance companies to pay for a Breast Reconstruction surgery following a full or partial mastectomy due to breast cancer. At Ambay Plastic Surgery, our team is committed to helping you receive the confidence you deserve.
We understand that sometimes a Breast Reconstruction procedure can be an emotional process. We promise to be with you every step of the way and provide you with all of the knowledge and guidance you need to make the best decision for your body and needs.
Breast Reconstruction Options
There are 4 main options when it comes to your breast reconstruction:
Tissue Expander With Implants
This breast reconstruction option happens in two stages. First, the expander is placed in your chest wall along with mesh the same day as the mastectomy. After the mastectomy, the expander will be filled with saline every 1-2 weeks. After the expander has been filled to the adequate amount, the expanders are removed and replaced with a breast implant.
Latissimus Dorsi Flap
The Latissimus Dorsi Flap is the large muscle that runs along the back. In this reconstructive surgery, this muscle is cut and rotated from the back to the front of the breast.
The Tram Flap uses the muscle that runs along the stomach referred to as the 'six pack'. This muscle is cut and tunneled under the skin to the chest wall, replacing the breast.
This type of reconstruction does not involve any cutting of muscle or anythingartificial being placed. The skin and fat from the abdomen is taken and transferred to the chest wall to recreate a new, natural breast.
