Best Candidates for Breast Reconstruction
Types of Breast Reconstruction in Beverly Hills
Partial Breast Reconstruction
Partial breast reconstruction is often called “oncoplastic surgery” where only parts of the breast are reconstructed. Many of the times, it is due to dissatisfaction of the appearance of the breasts after lumpectomy since every lumpectomy defect is unique and the options for reconstruction vary from patient to patient.
Implant Based Breast Reconstruction
Implant based breast reconstruction uses breast implants to increase or restore breast size. We offer an assortment of implant options for our Beverly Hills patients: saline, silicone, and round or tear shaped and even smooth or textured breast implants. Implant based breast reconstruction is a safe and effective procedure which can lead to positive results.
Autologous (free flap) Breast Reconstruction
Autologous breast reconstruction is the transfer of fat from the lower abdomen or buttock to the breast to create a new breast mound. The autologous breast reconstruction is for women that do not have adequate volume in the breast region. The use of tissues and a breast implant can sometimes be recommended as an alternative.
Revision Breast Reconstruction
Breast revision reconstruction is performed when the initial reconstructive procedure does not satisfy the patient’s desires. it is not uncommon for breast cancer patients who have undergone breast reconstruction to end up having breast revision as well.
Nipple (Areola) Reconstruction
Nipple areola reconstruction sets the finishing touches for the best possible aesthetic outcome in patient’s undergoing breast reconstruction procedures. Nipple and areola reconstruction allows Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker to give our Beverly Hills patients the more natural looking breasts that they desire.
