We have had made inquiries regarding breast reconstruction, opinions regarding reconstructive procedures that one was offered, and questions on results following breast reconstruction.  Just like with any other procedure in plastic surgery, it may be in one’s best interest to go to a place that specializes in that procedure.  Looking at education, training, recommendations, researching your surgeon, and having a comfort level with him/her should help in your decision making for choosing your surgeon.  Your consultation should include ALL breast reconstructive procedures, as there is not only one type of reconstruction.  You should be offered implant-based reconstruction, flap-based reconstruction including latissimus flaps and microsurgical flaps such as the DIEP, SGAP, SIEA, TUG, etc., as well as fat transfer procedures.  These are a collection of breast reconstruction and together, you and your surgeon should decided together which breast reconstructive procedure is right for you.

At the Scottsdale/Phoenix Breast Reconstruction Center, we focus entirely on breast reconstruction.  Hopefully, this passion for breast reconstruction and our breast reconstruction patients carries over to your level of care.  We perform nearly 200-250+ breast reconstructions annually.  We have completely the highly-competitive integrated general/plastic surgery residency and chosen to garner further training specifically in breast cancer/breast reconstruction and microsurgery, including flaps such as the DIEP and others.  We are skilled in all types of breast reconstruction and able to perform other reconstructive procedures if you so require them in the future.

All in all, we now offer second opinions for breast reconstruction and will be honored to educate on all types of breast reconstruction and our opinion on reconstructive procedure offered to you, prior to having your breast reconstruction performed.  Also, we look to give opinions on revisionary breast reconstruction and give our thoughts and options for your breast reconstruction, if already completed.  Feel free to contact our Center for a consultation regarding immediate breast reconstruction, delayed breast reconstruction, second opinion, or options for revision.
