The Life-Changing Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
Enhanced Self-EsteemWe 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 IdentityBreasts 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 SymmetryWhether 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 LifeLosing 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.

"I Could Not Have Asked for a Better Surgeon!"
I am a patient of Dr Kobienia’s because of a breast cancer diagnosis. I could not have asked for a better surgeon. I had a double mastectomy and he was there for me through chemo, radiation and then the reconstruction process. He is kind, patient, funny and very caring. I could not be more happy with the results. He is an artist! The nurses and office staff are great too. They really helped me during some difficult and stressful times. I highly recommend Dr. Kobienia!!View On Google

We Offer a Variety of Reconstruction Techniques
Breast Reconstruction with Implants
Reconstruction with breast implants can be performed immediately after your mastectomy or later in the future. During an immediate reconstruction, an implant is inserted into a pocket using the same incision made during your mastectomy. If you are not completely free of breast cancer, you must wait to be considered for surgery.
Delayed reconstruction involves the use of a tissue expander. A tissue expander is inserted into your chest area. You will periodically visit our office in greater Minneapolis, MN, serving Edina and nearby areas. During these appointments, Dr. Kobienia will inject saline into the expander, slowly stretching it over time. Once the expander has reached the desired size, it is removed, and an implant is placed.
Cohesive Breast Implants
Our practice is proud to offer cohesive breast implants, which are a popular choice among breast augmentation patients. Made of a special silicone gel, cohesive implants look and feel very natural.
Dr. Kobienia is skilled in pre-pectoral placement, which positions the implant in front of the chest muscle. This technique is often used in breast augmentation and allows for a more natural appearance when the muscle is flexed, along with a more comfortable recovery after surgery.
