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.

Coronavirus – Covid - 19

From everything that is presented to the public, the prevention recommendations related to the Coronavirus is the same as the prevention recommendations related to the flu season. Here are the CDC’s recommendations to date:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning agent.


The CDC does not recommend that travelers wear masks to protect themselves from the coronavirus. You may choose to wear a mask, but it is more important that you follow these everyday prevention practices.
