Winning the fight against breast cancer is a major accomplishment. After undergoing extensive treatment and navigating the emotional turmoil of this challenging situation, it is truly a gift to come out on the other side. However, the body and specifically the breasts may not feel as jubilant at the end of treatment, leading you to wonder how you can begin to feel like your best, once more? At Buffalo Plastic Surgery, Dr. Dawli is proud to offer a variety of cosmetic surgery options for breast cancer patients. Here are a few to consider:
Perhaps the first and highest priority on your mind is breast reconstruction. This procedure can either be done directly after a mastectomy or done years after your cancer treatment is complete. During the surgery, Dr. Dawli will recreate the shape of the breasts with either an artificial implant or flap of skin from another area of the body, so that you can feel reconnected with your feminine form.
In many cases, women who require breast reconstruction may also desire breast augmentation. This could be especially true if your original breast size never felt truly adequate. During this procedure, Dr. Dawli will add your desired implants to the breasts, to create the size and shape of the breast that you have always wanted.
In other cases, it may be a breast lift that will help restore your breasts to their more youthful appearance. This procedure can help with breast shape and firmness, so that you feel like your younger, more vibrant self, once again.
In all of these cases, recovery time will vary depending on the individual and the combination of procedures. However, generally speaking, you can expect to take several weeks–as many as six to eight–off of your normal range of physical activity, to give the body plenty of time to heal. Your treatment plan and pricing will be discussed during your consultation, so you will feel well informed as to what you can expect.
