Breast reconstruction is useful in the restoration of the feel and look of the breast after mastectomy has been conducted.

Contact us today to schedule a consultation in Los Alamitos and surrounding areas!
The Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
Due to illness or medical reasons, it may become necessary to remove some or all of the breast tissue, which can lead to physical deformity and a blatant difference in the size of the breasts. This can lead to self-esteem issues and cause many women to hide their breasts. With breast reconstruction surgery, a natural-looking breast can be reconstructed from tissues and implants depending on the individual. Rather than hiding your breasts or stuffing your bra with synthetic prosthetics, schedule a consultation today to take back the look and feel of your breasts with breast reconstruction surgery.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
During your consultation with our medical team, we will assess several factors such as the individual condition of your breasts, your health, your medical history, your surgical and aesthetic goals, and other factors to help you determine if breast reconstruction surgery is right for you.
Choosing the Right Breast Reconstruction Technique
There are any types of breast reconstruction including:
- Natural tissue flaps (using fat, skin, and muscle from other parts of the body)
- Breast implants ( filled with silicone and saline)
- A combination of the methods mentioned above
The type of breast reconstruction technique chosen for you may depend on your individual body type and the natural size of your breasts. Our goal is to always achieve the best, most natural-looking results for all of our patients.
At Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we understand that many women feel hesitation to discuss a procedure of this nature in a medical setting. Our offices in the Los Alamitos area offer women a safe, comfortable environment to discuss their concerns and have their questions addressed.
What is the Recovery Time after Breast Reconstruction Surgery?
The amount of healing time required after this procedure depends on the technique used and on individual factors. While we plan out your procedure with you, our experienced medical team will discuss how much time you should take off of work and normal activities to ensure an adequate amount of time for healing.
