Posted September 06, 2016 in Breast Implants, Breast Reconstruction, by Dr. Fiorillo
Understandably, it is often very difficult for women to feel confident with their bodies after a mastectomy. Operating out of the New York and New Jersey areas, Dr. Fiorillo can help you reclaim your body using the most modern techniques and equipment available.
Body image is something which is very important to many women in New York and New Jersey. While treating breast cancer, it is important to remain positive and confident. However, this can be one of the most difficult things to do post-mastectomy. Breasts are generally very important in order for you to feel confident with your feminine figure, so mastectomy patients commonly explore breast reconstruction surgery. Since this is a deeply personal surgery, it is important to get a consultation by a doctor you can trust. Dr. Fiorillo is a double board-certified plastic surgeon, and is your best choice in the New York and New Jersey areas.
There are a few different ways that the procedure can be done, depending on the individual case. One way is to use implants, which take the place of the tissue that has been removed. This works similarly to breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Fiorillo recommends the use of Gummy Bear implants as these are the best to give natural looking and feeling breasts. The other method is to use tissue from other parts of the body to replace what was lost in the breasts.
Often a mastectomy is only required on one breast. In these cases, it is possible for Dr. Fiorillo to perform the reconstruction on the removed breast and in the same procedure, perform an augmentation on the other breast. The main reason for this is that it is often difficult to exactly replicate the other breast and breast symmetry is a very important part of feeling confident.
For any women in the New York and New Jersey area who wish to consider having breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy, Dr. Fiorillo and the rest of his team are the best people to look to for advice.
