Breast Reconstruction After Cancer
Breast cancer presents women with dual challenges: not only must they battle a life-threatening illness, but survivors can be left feeling permanently scarred by life-saving surgeries employed to combat their breast cancer. Some women may feel a loss of femininity or sexuality after mastectomy. Breast reconstruction after cancer can help women regain their confidence and feminine form.
At The Breast Center Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, we understand that your cancer treatment is of primary importance. At the same time, we believe that quality of life for breast cancer survivors can be enhanced when patients realize their reconstructive goals. Our cosmetic surgeons partner with local hospitals and oncologists to provide the quality comprehensive care our Colorado breast cancer reconstruction patients deserve. We are well versed in all the most advanced surgical techniques, and we can help you decide what type of breast cancer reconstruction might be right for you.
Autologous Tissue Breast Reconstruction
Autologous tissue breast reconstruction uses your own muscle, fat and skin to rebuild your breast. With autologous tissue reconstruction, we can re-form breasts that look and feel more natural, without the need for artificial implants.
Our surgeons are among only a handful of plastic surgeons in the United States who perform the most advanced breast cancer reconstruction techniques, including perforator based microsurgical techniques that can help speed recovery and limit weakness at the donor sites. View images of this procedure in our Autologous Reconstruction Before & After Gallery.
Breast Reconstruction and Breast Implant
Many women considering breast reconstruction elect to use a breast implant to help re-form their breasts. This type of breast cancer reconstruction is ideal for women who don’t have enough extra body tissue to use for breast reconstruction. By using tissue expanders to create a pocket for a permanent implant, our cosmetic surgeons can help women regain their feminine form.
Areola Pigmentation (Nipple Tattooing)
Whichever method of breast reconstruction you choose, the final step in the process is reconstruction of the nipple and the areola, the pigmented skin around the nipple. Areola pigmentation, often referred to as nipple tattooing, is a simple, virtually painless, in-office procedure that can restore the circular pigment around your nipple. During the procedure, the pigment is permanently placed using tattooing techniques.
Areola pigmentation can be customized to match your natural areola color, or you may choose a darker or lighter color if you desire. Whether you've been with us through your entire breast reconstruction process, or you just need our help with the final nipple tattooing, The Breast Center Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery is here for you.
