Treatments for aesthetic concerns after chemo

Dr. Albert Andres is passionate about helping breast cancer patients put cancer in their past with breast reconstruction and other restorative treatments. He and his team are dedicated to seeing cancer survivors through their journey from surgery to adjuvant treatments, such as radiation and chemotherapy.  

We understand the effects chemotherapy and radiation have on the skin, and we are there for you with compassionate care for those who want aesthetic assistance during their journey. We offer a range of treatments available before, during and after your cancer treatments.  

Non-surgical treatments for chemo patients

If you have had chemo and are concerned about the changes to your skin, face, hair, and body, Dr. Andres offers a range of treatments specifically for cancer patients who want to restore a natural, healthy look. 

  • Hair loss: Many experience hair loss after chemo, including eyelashes and brows. These issues can be treated with microblading to create natural-looking brows. Eyelash growth can be enhanced with Latisse applications once daily. PRP injections into the scalp can help restore hair follicles to produce healthy strands more quickly and help avoid thinning when the hair grows in.
  • Facial changes: For chemo patients who have experienced significant facial changes, with fat and tissue less firm and supple, dermal fillers can be injected to restore lost volume, treat under-eye bags or sunken areas, or injected carefully to keep the lips looking plump and healthy. Every person is unique in how chemo medications have affected the face, and all filler injections are performed with precision and advanced injection technique, guided by a commitment to achieve a very natural, healthy look.

Surgical treatments for chemotherapy patients

The appearance of the body can change significantly due to chemotherapy. While chemo treatments attack cancer cells, they also impact the healthy cells of the body. Some patients experience weight gain, while some cause weight loss or may increase the quantity of fatty tissue. These issues can be resolved with a custom surgery by Dr. Albert Andres in Scottsdale. A talented, much-awarded plastic surgeon, he works closely with cancer survivors to help them enjoy a more confident life with custom-performed surgeries to resolve body changes.

  • Fat grafting: Harvesting fat cells from an area with an excess, such as thighs, hips, and buttocks. The harvested fat cells can be purified and injected to enhance breasts or facial areas that appear sunken or have lost volume. 
  • Body contouring: If your figure has dramatically changed after chemotherapy treatments, it is not uncommon – but it can be very distressing. Body contouring procedures can restore a firm, healthy look to the figure with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, or a combination of treatments to restore a youthful, firm figure.
  • Facial surgery: A facelift or eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) may be the best approach for some patients who have experienced significant facial sagging or volume loss after chemotherapy. These procedures can be enhanced with filler or custom fat transfer treatments for long-term results.
