What is a Breast Reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction surgery is designed to improve the balance and shape of your body, and this can be done through enhancement, reduction, or revision. Our physicians at ReInventMe in The Villages can address a variety of issues related to their breast appearance.
The surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reconstruction, can give you a contoured, youthful, and natural appearance to the breasts that meet your individual goals.
We also offer our patients effective breast reduction procedures for men, which is referred to as gynecomastia surgery and for women who suffer from overly large breasts, which can result in chronic discomfort and pain from the weight of the breasts. Our reconstructive surgery options are a great way to help improve your self-image.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Breast Reconstruction?
These types of reconstruction surgery typically fall into two different categories. The first is implant-based and the second is flap reconstruction. Implant surgery utilizes breast implants to help give a patient a new breast mound. The flap reconstruction will utilize your own tissue from another part of your body, which is then used to create a new breast.
These procedures are customized to meet the needs of each patient, and it’s imperative that you know whether or not you’re a good candidate for this surgery. An ideal candidate will:
Not have other medical conditions or illnesses that will impair their ability to heal.
Have a positive outlook for your surgery. Have realistic goals for your surgery
What are the Benefits of Breast Reconstruction?
The benefit, of course is that the breast surgery can stop this sagging as well as raise the position of the nipples and the areolae. In addition to this, the size of the areolae can be reduced to keep them proportionate to the size of the newly shaped breasts.
