If you have had a mastectomy or a doctor has told you that you will need one, breast reconstruction may be an option for you. Dr. Kobienia performs breast reconstruction as a specialized series of operations designed to recreate your breast as closely as possible to its original shape. Breast reconstruction can be a positive step to heal the emotional trauma from breast cancer and take charge of moving forward.
This procedure offers women many benefits, including:
- Enhanced Self-Esteem – We understand that choosing to undergo breast reconstruction is about so much more than just looking good. It’s about feeling great inside and out. Dr. Kobienia helps women regain confidence by restoring lost tissue due to breast cancer so they can feel complete–physically and emotionally.
- Renewed Sense of Identity – Breasts play a big part in a woman’s identity. Women who receive a mastectomy may feel less feminine or as though they’ve lost a part of themselves. We help women regain a sense of identity and feel confident in their bodies.
- Restored Shape and Symmetry – Whether you opt for breast implants or reconstruction using flap surgery techniques, breast reconstruction enhances your figure and allows you to fill out your favorite clothes again.
- Improved Quality of Life – Losing a breast can be difficult and challenging, affecting your quality of life. Breast reconstruction allows patients to focus on starting a new chapter of their life and moving on from their breast cancer journey.
Dr. Kobienia has experience and training in the latest reconstructive surgery techniques, and he can work closely with your breast cancer surgeon to plan your surgery.
