Breast Reconstruction

in Albany, NY

How can my breast reconstruction be customized?

Breast reconstruction involves a number of different techniques to recreate or restore a feminine chest for women who have had surgery to treat breast cancer. The one that is chosen depends on a number of variables. Some of these variables include the size of the breast that is being reconstructed, the patient’s weight and fat distribution and whether or not radiation is planned. Each type of reconstruction has different pros and cons. Dr. Kayastha will review all options with you during your consultation.

Expander with Implant:

Breast reconstruction can be performed using implants to restore the breast mound. Implants allow for more significant restoration after a full mastectomy and are ideal for patients with naturally larger breasts. If there is not enough room for the implant to be placed, an expander may be required first. The expander slowly stretches the skin to make room for the implant.

Tissue and Fat Transfer:

The breast can be reconstructed using a natural tissue and fat transfer. In this type of restoration, tissue and/or fat is taken from another area of your body such as the abdomen, back, or thighs and is used to recreate the breast mound. This type of reconstruction is ideal for those with naturally smaller breasts and with enough tissue and fat in the donor sites.
