Breast Reconstruction Before and After Pictures in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Women located in or around Fort Lauderdale and Broward County who have had a mastectomy—due to cancer or any other reason—may be comforted to know about the advances available in breast reconstruction. We invite you to check out before and after pictures below that feature real reconstruction patients of board-certified plastic surgeon Barry Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Breast reconstruction consists of several different steps. Depending on the type of mastectomy a patient has undergone, some or all may be necessary. Reconstruction can include the use of implants or may be completed using tissue from another area of the body. In some cases, a combination of both types of reconstruction is used. If the nipple and areola were not spared in the mastectomy, Dr. Schwartz could recreate these areas, giving the appearance of a natural breast.
Breast reconstruction is performed under general anesthesia. While there is some recovery time, most patients are thankful for the opportunity to complete the procedure and restore their body to a more familiar shape.
