Breast Reconstruction Before & After Pictures of Patient 33
Breast Reconstruction After Mastectomy For Breast Cancer.
This unfortunate 45 year old Barrie woman underwent mastectomy for breast cancer of the right breast. She also had a scar on the left breast from a prior biopsy. As she knew early on she wanted to undergo breast reconstruction Toronto breast reconstructive expert Dr. Weinberg operated very shortly after her initial surgery to place a 650cc siltex medium high profile expander beneath the skin of the right chest wall. After several months she underwent a breast reduction on the large, pendulous breast on the left, and during the same procedure the temporary siltex expander was removed and replaced with a 685 cc silicone cohesive gel breast implant , placed submuscularly with an incision through the mastectomy scar. At a separate later procedure the nipple on the right was recreated using a combination of a cartilage graft from the patieint’s ear, and cosmetic tatooing. While perfect symmetry is not possible in cases where there is a complete absence of natural breast tissue on one side compared to a generous ptotic ( hanging) breast on the other, a very reasonable cosmetic result was achieved, and the patient was extremely pleased.
