Breastlink is one of the only breast cancer centers in the country to have full time plastic surgeons on staff working side by side with breast cancer surgeons and oncologists in the comprehensive management of breast cancer. Our team of plastic surgeons is committed to total care and empowering women in reclaiming their lives by offering state-of-the-art breast reconstruction procedures.
We understand that every woman diagnosed with breast cancer is undergoing a life changing experience. There are many important decisions that you will make along your path to recovery. We believe in patient education so that our patients can feel confident about their care.
Whether you are planning for surgery in the future, or were treated for breast cancer in the past, there are many breast reconstructive options that can help you achieve a natural, feminine appearance after your surgery. It is important for you to discuss all of your breast reconstruction options with your cancer surgeon as well as your plastic surgeon in order to develop a surgical plan that is best suited for you.
- For patients undergoing mastectomy, breast reconstruction can be performed using breast implants or using your own tissue including innovative free flap techniques (DIEP flaps).
- For patients who are candidates for lumpectomy, reconstructive (oncoplastic) techniques can be utilized to avoid unfavorable cosmetic results.
Breast Reconstruction and Plastic Surgery Services
At our Breastlink centers, all of our patients are given the opportunity to have a consultation with one of our in-house plastic surgeons to explore their breast reconstructive options. Our plastic surgeons work closely with our team of breast cancer surgeons and medical oncologists to coordinate care for our patients.
During the consultation, your plastic surgeon will review your cancer treatment plan and discuss your goals for breast reconstruction. You will have the opportunity to learn about the breast reconstructive options available so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment. Together with your plastic surgeon, an individualized breast reconstruction treatment plan can be crafted to best meet your goals.
