Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery
specializes in breast reconstruction surgery, a procedure which builds a new breast or restores a breast to near normal shape after breast cancer surgery
. Breast reconstruction can be completed immediately following a mastectomy (immediate reconstruction) or at a later date (delayed reconstruction). A rebuilt breast will not have the same sensation and feel as the original breast, but it can help women look and feel more natural.
Your Breast Reconstruction Consultation
There are many factors to discuss when considering breast reconstruction surgery. Led by Paul A. Berry, M.D., and Kevin P. Kunkel, M.D., the highly skilled and attentive team at Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery are here to help you make an informed and confident decision. During an initial consultation, they'll take the time to:
- Explain and explore all available options for breast reconstruction surgery, taking into account your specific diagnosis, as well as your lifestyle and personal preferences
- Determine whether immediate or delayed reconstruction is best for you
- Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions, previous surgeries, drug allergies and medical treatments, including current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements, as well as alcohol and tobacco use
- Discuss general and individual risk factors, as well as potential complications
During this time, we encourage you to be completely candid with your surgeon to help ensure the best possible outcome.
Drs. Berry and Kunkel are board certified and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Why is this important?
