Breast Reconstruction

If you’re in need of mastectomy surgery to address or prevent the occurrence of breast cancer, you may also be considering breast reconstruction surgery. A breast reconstruction can restore the appearance of your breasts following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. It can be performed on only one breast or both breasts.

Breast reconstruction is personalized to each patient’s needs and circumstances. It may involve transfer of a tissue flap from another area of the patient’s body. It may involve placement of breast implants to create new volume, and tissue expanders may need to be placed beforehand.

Natural Tissue Breast Reconstruction

This form of breast reconstruction involves rebuilding the breast mound using a flap of tissue from another part of your body. Tissue flaps often contain skin, fat, and muscle tissue. Dr. Wotowic can perform TRAM flap, DIEAP/DIEP flap, latissimus muscle flap, gluteal flap, and TUG flap techniques.

Reconstructive Facial, Head & Neck Procedures

This surgery corrects head, face, and neck deformities after trauma, surgery, or a cancer treatment. It uses cosmetic surgery techniques combined with reconstructive grafts or flaps to create a natural, functional, and symmetrical appearance.

Reconstructive Nasal Procedures

This procedure corrects nose deformities caused by congenital defects, trauma, or skin cancer excision. It is conducted under magnification, since millimeters of difference can have significant aesthetic and functional consequences.

Tiny incisions will be made inside the nostrils or across the columella (the external strip of tissue between the nostrils). Nasal cartilage, bone, and/or soft tissue may be altered to reconstruct the nose.

Skin Cancer Surgery

This surgery removes cancerous skin lesions. In many cases, this can leave a gap, which can be especially troubling if the lesion is being removed from the face. A natural appearance can be restored to the area with the help of skin cancer reconstruction surgery.

Scar Revision

Scar revision reduces the appearance of scars. This is especially helpful in the case of painful, chronically irritated, hyperpigmented, and raised scars. A number of techniques may be utilized, including excision of the old scar and relocation of the scar to a more concealed area.

Your Consultation

During a consultation, you and Dr. Wotowic will discuss your reconstructive needs. Dr. Wotowic will perform an examination of the concerned areas and will ask you for more information. The two of you will also go over your complete medical history, including allergies, current medications, and any pre-existing medical conditions.

Next, Dr. Wotowic will recommend a reconstructive procedure and explain the details of the surgery. He will give you preparation and recovery instructions. Questions are highly encouraged. Finally, a date will be set for your procedure.
