What is Breast Reconstruction?
The professionals at Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan understand that the loss of a breast to breast cancer can be an emotional and traumatic event in a woman’s life. Many types of procedures are now available to women in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area for breast reconstruction after a complete or partial mastectomy. Current techniques of breast reconstruction may help improve your self-confidence and self-image, thus improving your quality of life. Careful patient evaluation is necessary to choose the “right” procedure for each individual patient.
Our plastic surgeons understand that every case is different and strive to give you exceptional personal care. We have extensive experience with this procedure, have board-certified anesthesiologists on staff, and perform a number of reconstructive breast surgeries in our fully accredited facility. However, all initial or immediate reconstructive procedures are performed in the hospital at the same time as your mastectomy.
