Breast Reconstruction

Reconstruction of the breast after a mastectomy due to cancer or other disease is quite possible with today’s surgical procedures. The procedure is often covered by many HMOs after breast cancer surgery and legislation is currently before Congress to enact mandatory coverage. Using the newest medical techniques, a plastic surgeon is often able to create a breast that is similar in form and appearance to that of the natural breast. A consultation will provide you with information on the many available options for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.

Breast reconstruction is usually achieved through multiple plastic surgery techniques and procedures in an attempt to restore a breast to its normal and natural shape, appearance and size following a mastectomy. Results are highly variable depending on each individual patient – this includes where incision lines are located, scar size, the sensation of your breasts, procedures needed and the implants or donor sites used.

Dr. Monasebian will work with you to individualize your treatment plan. Procedures for a breast reconstruction may need to be performed in a New York City hospital as well as in our office-based surgical facility in the Upper East Side. Multiple steps may be necessary to full breast reconstruction after the initial mastectomy, such as a flap technique that takes tissue from another area in the body to make a breast mound, tissue expanders to stretch healthy skin to accomadate a breast implant, breast augmentation procedure, nipple creation and areola tattooing.

Dr. Monasebian and Park Avenue Plastic Surgery hope you and your family are healthy and safe. These past several months have been trying times for all of us. We all want to take this opportunity to update you as to what we have been doing these past few months. Up until Monday June 8th we had been open seeing patients with emergent and urgent conditions. Governor Cuomo lifted the executive order and we are now permitted to see all patients including those for elective surgeries and procedures. For the safety of our patients, their family, and our staff, we have adopted all the guidelines issued by the CDC and our national, regional and local medical and Plastic Surgery Associations to make sure we are in strict accord with those guidelines.

We are currently up to date with all our PPE and are ready to evaluate and treat all our patients. Please rest assured that we are practicing strict social distancing guidelines and barrier protection has been added to our office. All patients, doctors and staff will be undergoing daily temperature checks in accord with the latest guidelines. Patients will be given questionnaires about their recent health as well. 

Our commitment to our patients has never waned and is our utmost priority. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns and we look forward to seeing you soon!
