Experienced Providers. Empathetic Care.
A breast reconstruction procedure is commonly performed on women who’ve undergone treatment for breast cancer and a subsequent mastectomy or lumpectomy. Some may also choose this procedure due to a congenital deformity. Regardless of the reason, the decision to reconstruct the area is a highly personal one. Should a patient choose to receive a breast reconstruction in Tuscaloosa, Indian Hills Plastic Surgery can ensure a personalized, compassionate care experience.
How it Works
What to Expect During Breast Reconstruction in Tuscaloosa
Before a breast reconstruction surgery, you’ll meet with Dr. Wallace for an initial consultation to go over your needs and your goals post-procedure. A breast reconstruction may involve one of several different techniques, including saline-filled, silicone gel-filled implants or utilizing your body’s own tissue.
Ultimately, this will depend on factors such as age, lifestyle, and whether or not a patient still requires breast cancer treatment. Dr. Wallace can perform cosmetic surgery on one or both breasts at one of our plastic surgery centers in Tuscaloosa.
What it treats:
Patients can use breast reconstruction surgery as a way to reshape breasts, restore symmetry, and rebuild any damaged or missing tissue.
Performed under general anesthesia, a breast reconstruction procedure can take 2-4 hours depending on the patient.
Recovery time varies by patient, but most can expect to take significant time off from their normal activities. Most patients generally take 6 to 8 weeks to make a full recovery following their breast reconstruction in Tuscaloosa.
Committing to an aesthetic treatment is an important decision, and the team Indian Hills Plastic Surgery believes in respecting that decision. Our plastic surgery center in Tuscaloosa does this by delivering compassionate care, comprehensive treatment education, and exceptional results for all patients.
