Breast Asymmetry and Congenital Anomalies
What is it?
Breast asymmetry and impairments in breast growth (Poland Syndrome, Tuberous Breast, Constricted breast, etc) can be a particularly debilitating issue for patients of all ages. Restoring symmetry in clothing is of paramount importance for improving their self-confidence. These surgeries are often considered reconstruction and may qualify for insurance coverage. You may want to call your insurance company to inquire and our office can assist you in this process. These surgeries are very impactful for the patient.
Am I a candidate?
Candidates for this surgery are determined after a thorough interview and exam by Dr. Hartmann. Minors are seen with a guardian to discuss the appropriate age for surgery, taking into consideration the psychosocial needs of each individual. Up to date breast imaging to screen for breast cancer will be mandatory if you are over 40 years of age.
Before & Afters
What is recovery like?
Recovery following breast reconstruction varies from situation to situation. Dr. Hartmann will advise per individual case.
