After undergoing a mastectomy, many women struggle with the lose of their womanly curves and long to feel whole again. Dr. McIntosh understands how painful this can be for women, and he offers them the chance to gain back their breasts through plastic surgery. Although, your new breasts may not have the same feel and sensation as your former breasts, they will provide you with the curves you have lost. Numerous Bellevue breast reconstruction patients have been amazed by the results they have seen from this procedure and cannot believe that they have gained back their womanly feel.
Depending on the amount of tissue left after your mastectomy, the doctor will make a flap to support the implant. There are a few options for flaps:
- TRAM Flap uses donor muscle, fat and tissue from the woman’s abdomen to reconstruct the breasts.
- DIEP or SGAP flaps use no muscle but instead only the fat and tissue from the abdomen or buttock to create a flap for the new breast.
- Latissimus Dorsi Flap uses muscle, fat and tissue from the back.
Once the flap is created, it will take multiple surgeries to slowly expand the tissue for the permanent implant. Some people choose to only use the flap for their new breasts, but many of Dr. McIntosh’s patients additionally choose a saline or silicone implant. Finally, a skin graft is used to create a nipple and areola.
After the final procedure, there is minimal downtime, and scarring is barely visible over time. With the completion of the procedure, there is little discomfort for most patients.
