Reconstructive Breast Surgery & Procedures

Breast reconstruction is achieved through several different plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance, and size following a breast cancer diagnosis and mastectomy. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.

Our surgeons also perform procedures to achieve symmetry when breasts are not equal in size and shape. This can help ensure that you look and feel your best.
