Breast Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA

Women who desire to maintain or achieve the feminine figure that most women possess may seek breast reconstruction, typically after a mastectomy, injury, or birth defect. In many cases, breast reconstruction is performed immediately after mastectomy, but it is essential to consult with a plastic surgeon to determine your body’s best action plan.

With that being said, breast reconstruction is designed to restore a natural, symmetrical appearance of the female upper body to maintain body proportion but mainly to boost self-confidence after losing one or both breasts or lack of breasts due to a biological abnormality. At Feldmar Aesthetics we help treat patients who desire an aesthetically pleasing body type through one of the current breast reconstruction techniques.

Breast Reconstruction Options in Los Angeles

Breast reconstruction is a cosmetic surgery that restores or enhances a woman’s breast shape in one or both breasts. The decision about which approach to use depends on the type of mastectomy initially performed, the skill of the cosmetic surgeon, and the patient’s personal preference. There are a number of reconstruction options that are well known and some that are new to patients.

These techniques include:

Utilizing silicone gel or saline implants can offer an excellent fulfilling achievement for a patient lacking shape and volume of a natural breast. Special tissue expanders will slowly develop an implant pocket within the confines of the breast tissue and after enough space is made the implants may be placed. Learn More

This reconstruction option involves using the patient’s body fat to create a natural breast mound, typically for patients who have healed after mastectomy and possess enough donor tissue for harvesting. Excess fat can be removed throughout troubled zones from the body by liposuction and purified to correct the size and shape of abnormal-sized breasts. 

In certain cases with patients who undergo single mastectomy, a breast reduction or breast lift can be performed on the other breast to achieve an even size and placement with the reconstructed breast. Learn More

A patient’s nipples are typically removed during a mastectomy, so nipple and areola reconstruction is often included as part of the breast reconstruction procedure. In other cases, where a patient has experienced a birth defect that surpassed the changes of puberty and one of the nipples may have developed abnormally compared to the other, nipple reconstruction can resize and replace them symmetrically on the breasts.

This is one of the traditional methods of breast reconstruction where native flaps of tissue from the patient’s abdomen, back or thighs are used to reshape the breast, either with or without breast implants. Learn More

Candidates for Breast Reconstruction in Beverly Hills

Most women who have undergone breast cancer surgery are candidates for breast reconstruction. There are other patients who experienced a lifelong desire for a naturally feminine look for their body type, which was not achieved after puberty, in which case females can consider themselves candidates.

The ideal breast reconstruction candidates will depend on the patients:

  • Current health and medical history
  • Stage of cancer and ongoing treatments
  • Current height-to-weight ratio
  • Cosmetic expectations for surgery

Recovery After Breast Reconstruction

Following breast reconstruction, a patient can expect to feel uncomfortable over the first couple of days, accompanied by light bruising and swelling. Depending on the type of surgery performed most patients can expect to stay overnight at a hospital to ensure that initial infections or complications are avoided. Prescription pain medication and antibiotics will be provided to minimize discomfort, but the good news is that light physical activity can resume shortly after your release.
