An Overview of Breast Reconstruction

Plastic Surgeon proudly serving Beverly Hills, Hollywood & Santa Monica areas of California

Many women do not fully understand the breast reconstruction options that are available to them after a cancer diagnosis.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, only 23 percent of women know all of their reconstruction options.  Furthermore, only 19 percent of women understand how the timing of their cancer treatment, and decision to undergo reconstruction, can affect their options for reconstruction and their results.

A team approach to breast cancer is extremely important. By creating her team of medical professionals including medical and surgical oncologists, plastic surgeon, and radiation oncologist at the time of a breast cancer diagnosis, a patient becomes empowered, can better understand her options and potentially achieve an improved outcome.

The guide below provides an overview of breast reconstruction. If you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, please schedule an individualized consultation with double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jay Orringer to better understand your options for reconstruction and effects that factors such as radiation may have on a currently planned or future reconstruction.

Every woman should be aware of the breast reconstructive choices that are available. During your consultation, Dr. Orringer will educate you regarding a variety of options and will suggest those options he believes to be potentially most appropriate for your unique situation and considerations. He believes that it is a privilege to be part of your team and to share in your care during this journey.
