Mastectomy remains an important service for the treatment or prevention of breast cancer. With our innovative one-stage breast reconstruction, you can undergo a mastectomy and awake to intact, natural-looking breasts and minimal scarring. By performing the breast reconstruction at the time of the mastectomy, we can help to decrease the need for multiple surgeries and accelerate your recovery.
Traditional treatment for breast restoration following mastectomy involves the placement of tissue expanders at the time of mastectomy and subsequently, the placement of implants several months later. During the mastectomy, implants are placed and supported by acellular dermal matrix, which functions as an internal bra; this is an option for some patients. Dr. Natalie Driessen can help you determine whether you are a candidate for this treatment option.
