Specializing in delayed breast reconstruction
Delayed breast reconstruction can be performed weeks, months, or even years after a mastectomy. Most commonly it is performed for patients with:
a poor quality implant reconstruction
a failed implant reconstruction
post mastectomy pain syndrome
an asymmetric reconstruction
concern about textured breast implants and BIA-ALCL
Please take a minute to review Dr. Dec's patient guide to delayed breast reconstruction and read about the types of patients who benefited from a delayed breast reconstruction.
