Breast Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction Los Angeles

Breast reconstruction surgery restores a symmetrical, natural appearance to the chest, maintains body proportion, allows clothes & swimsuits to fit better, and most importantly, boosts self-confidence for women who have lost one or both breasts to mastectomy or who lack breasts due to a congenital or developmental abnormality. Plastic and reconstructive surgeons strive to create a new breast and nipple-areola complex that resembles the woman’s natural breast as closely as possible in shape, size and position. This may be performed utilizing a myriad of techniques including implants, tissue expanders, and/or patients own, native tissues such as the abdomen (TRAM flap) or back (Latissmus flap) areas.  Breast reconstruction is a highly personal and individualized process that requires extensive consultation with a “plastic surgeon” and not a general surgeon. During your consultation with Dr. Downey she will discuss what your options are.
