In 1998, the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act was signed into federal law to protect women who choose to have their breasts rebuilt (reconstructed) after treatment for breast cancer. Breast reconstruction is also a covered benefit for women who have a significant likelihood of developing breast cancer and are seeking treatment for prophylactic purposes. Angelina Jolie recently underwent a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgeries, which highlighted how important it is for women to understand their reconstructive options after undergoing such a vital surgery.
At Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, Kyle R Song, MD, provides superior breast reconstruction surgeries for patients who want to achieve a natural and balanced look. Whether you want to replace your breasts after undergoing a mastectomy or simply want to enhance your shape and restore your confidence, Dr. Song can offer the following breast reconstruction options:
- Fat Grafting: A fat grafting procedure is an ideal choice for patients who also want to enjoy the benefits of body contouring. With a fat grafting procedure, Dr. Song will remove fat from a pre-determined part of the body (usually the stomach, thighs, buttocks, or hips) and use that fat to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Fat grafting can produce breasts that look and feel much more natural, as the body’s natural fat is being used. What’s more, these results are perfectly complemented with a more contoured waistline or buttocks.
- Breast Revision: If you have previously undergone breast reconstruction and are not totally satisfied with the result, Dr. Song may be able to offer an innovative solution to achieve a more natural and balanced appearance.
- Breast Augmentation: Dr. Song specializes in breast augmentation procedures that look and feel natural. During the initial consultation, Dr. Song will work with you to determine what size and shape implants will look best with your body type. During the procedure, Dr. Song will utilize minimal incisions to ensure that minimal scarring is experienced. Patients should expect to experience a personalized surgical procedure, as Dr. Song ensures that all patients are extremely satisfied with their results.
For patients who are looking for breast reconstruction after undergoing a mastectomy, Dr. Song specializes in using shaped implants and unique skin-and-nipple-saving techniques to produce your most natural-looking breasts possible. Dr. Song’s patients who have undergone this surgery have often raved about their results.
In addition to these reconstructive breast surgeries, Dr. Song can also provide breast lifts, breast reductions, breast implant revisions, and mommy makeovers.
