Possible treatments include:
- Tissue expansion: Your surgeon places expanders in your chest, which stretch your skin gradually to create room for breast implants. The process usually takes 4 to 6 months.
- Transplantation: Muscle, fat and skin can come from your chest, abdomen, back or buttocks, or from healthy donor tissue. Your surgeon may also be able to preserve your nipple and areola or create new ones with skin grafting or other specialized techniques.
At Aurora, we strive to offer exceptional, compassionate care. Every Aurora reconstructive plastic surgeon is board certified and dedicated to making your breast reconstruction surgery both safe and successful. You can count on experience, skill and support through every step of your treatment and recovery.
