Popular Breast Reconstruction Methods
Breast Reconstruction with Implants
Breast reconstruction with a breast implant or implants can be an addition or alternative to a TRAM flap. Breast implants can help you get more dependable results as far as shape and size. We have a full range of saline and silicone implants available for reconstruction, and will help you find just the right implants considering your needs. Note that reconstructing your breast shape with an implant alone most often requires tissue expansion.
Completing the Picture
Most women like to complete their breast reconstruction with reconstruction of the nipple and areola. There are a variety of surgical techniques to construct a nipple shape, and medical tattooing is often used as a final touch to create the appearance of an areola.
Our board certified plastic surgeons have expertise in each of these procedures, but it’s important not to get committed to one plan before you have an in-person consultation and hear about the pros and cons of each technique for your body and goals. We will be realistic and take great care to help you decide what is best for you.
