Breast Reconstruction In Providence

Losing a breast to cancer is an extremely significant traumatic event for any woman. Thanks to the latest technological advances in breast reconstruction, there are newer and more realistic-looking ways to reconstruct a normal-appearing breast after mastectomy.

Recreating the breast is a critical step for many women – restoring self-confidence and quality of life and more thoroughly treating breast cancer from start to finish. You should know that breast reconstruction has made huge strides.

A breast that has been reconstructed won’t look exactly like the breast that was lost. It’s important for breast reconstruction candidates to understand this and have realistic expectations for the procedure and outcome. Ideal candidates should be in good health and not suffering from any condition that would hinder proper healing and recovery.

Breast reconstruction can be performed at the same time as mastectomy or be delayed months or even years after cancer treatments have been completed. Dr. Zienowicz uses different techniques, including the latissumus dorsi flap procedure, the TRAM flap procedure and the reconstructive expander procedure.
