We see breast cancer patients every week who have had previous breast cancer reconstruction surgery, who are unhappy with their results, and are now in need of breast reconstruction revision. Some of these women were treated years ago before more recent surgically advanced techniques were available. Correcting breast reconstruction results from previous surgeries to help breast cancer patients feel whole and beautiful again, is one of my specialties

Common complaints are:

  • Large, unsightly mastectomy scars
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Badly positioned implants
  • Divots or hollows
  • Capsular contracture(hardening around implants)

I have many techniques for correcting breast problems in my cosmetic surgery practice as well as in my breast reconstruction practice. I bring my exacting, painstaking attention to detail and a problem-solving approach in correcting prior breast reconstruction surgery results, to give you the natural, beautiful look you desire and the confidence you deserve.

Your Options for Breast Reconstruction in Minneapolis

You have options for restoring the appearance of the breasts after mastectomy or lumpectomy.

  • Flap Surgery – Tissue from your body is used to recreate the breast mound. There are several different areas of the body with excess tissue to use in flap surgery including the lower abdomen, back, buttocks, and thigh.
  • Implant Based Reconstruction – An implant is placed into the breast to create a breast mound. Implant reconstruction is typically a two-phase process. First, a tissue expander is placed to stretch the skin and muscle. Then the expander is removed, and the permanent implant is placed.
  • Fat Grafting – Small divots and contour irregularities can be corrected with fat grafting. Fat is removed from another area of the body and transplanted into the breast.
