About this patient
This 41-year-old woman from Phoenix, AZ desired bilateral breast reconstruction following her mastectomy and consulted with Dr. Andres at the Scottsdale Breast Reconstruction Center. A thorough discussion of her wishes and all of the reconstruction options available, she wished to be a little larger than prior to her surgery and chose to undergo tissue expander breast reconstruction. After adequate expansion, she had her second stage of the procedure performed with silicone gel implants. After photos at 17 months demonstrate an excellent shape to her reconstructed breasts along with appropriate size to fit her body habitus. She is very happy with her reconstructed breasts with very minimal, if any, complaints throughout the reconstructive process. She stated that she has increased confidence and a feeling of wholeness after her initial diagnosis.
