What is it?
Dr. Hartmann sees a variety of breast reconstruction patients- for some, it is their first reconstruction, for others, they have undergone previous surgeries and are looking for revision. Some patients present just after a breast cancer diagnosis and seek immediate reconstruction. Some patients have healed from their mastectomy and are now seeking reconstruction. Finally, some patients can experience breast asymmetry following lumpectomy and radiation. Reconstruction, much like augmentation, can be completed with implants or with your body’s own tissue. Dr. Hartmann does not perform free tissue reconstruction (DIEP flaps, free TRAM, SGAP) however a referral can be made. These surgeries are transformational for the patient.
Am I a candidate?
Breast reconstruction is very complex and nuanced. Candidacy will be determined based on your anatomy, diagnosis, and your preferences. Up to date breast imaging to screen for breast cancer will be mandatory if you are over 40 years of age.
