Other than skin cancer, the most prevalent cancer in women today is breast cancer.
This year alone, over 260,000 will get an invasive form of breast cancer and over 63,000 will have a diagnosis of non-invasive breast cancer.
For many women who have undergone a mastectomy due to breast cancer, a breast reconstruction can truly be a life changer and offer a way to move on from a traumatic experience.
Dr. Andrew Lofman specializes in breast reconstruction in Michigan and is here to help you learn more about this treatment.
What is a breast reconstruction?
A breast reconstruction is a cosmetic treatment that restores the appearance of breasts after a mastectomy.
As a leader in breast augmentation, Dr. Andrew is, likewise, a leading Detroit plastic surgeon who performs breast reconstruction with skill and care. He is always an advocate for his patients and knows just how life-changing a breast reconstruction can be for women who have undergone a mastectomy.
The law requires most health insurances to cover breast reconstruction procedures. A breast reconstruction can be performed at the same time as a mastectomy or on a future date. During this treatment, Dr. Andrew rebuilds the breasts with either an implant or your own body tissues to mirror your natural breasts.
For patients who wish to replace the shape and volume of the breasts, implants may be the best solution. Tissue reconstruction is often recommended for women who have had radiation, as radiation can increase the risk of scar tissue development from implants.
During a consultation, Dr. Andrew can make recommendations that may be best for you based on your goals, body type and lifestyle.
