Breast Reconstruction after a Mastectomy - Breast Implants

Breast reconstruction is frequently performed immediately following a mastectomy.

Breast implant reconstruction is a three-stage procedure.

The first stage is characterized by the initial use of a so-called tissue expander, which is an implant that is progressively inflated during subsequent office visits. It aims to stretch the skin to the desired volume.

The second stage, which is performed on an outpatient basis, consists of the replacement of this expander with a permanent prosthesis. At times the opposite breast might require readjustments in the way of reductions or lifts to better create symmetry between the two breasts.

The third stage, which is not required, is performed on an outpatient basis and consists of the restoration of the nipple and areola.

Dr. Fusi spends a substantial amount of time during the consultation to assist the patient in selecting the best option based on the individual's specific diagnosis and relevant circumstances.

At the time of your initial office consultation, Dr. Fusi will discuss is great detail the procedure, associated risks and postoperative recovery.
