The physicians at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center specialize in Breast Reconstruction Surgery in Raleigh, Cary and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
Breast reconstruction surgery is intended for women who have undergone a mastectomy due to cancer or any other reason. Although breast reconstruction can rebuild your breast, the results are highly variable:
- A reconstructed breast will not have the same sensation and feel as the breast it replaces.
- Visible incision lines will always be present on the breast, whether from reconstruction or mastectomy.
- Certain surgical techniques will leave incision lines at the donor site, commonly located in less exposed areas of the body such as the back, abdomen or buttocks.
