At Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Centennial, we provide an alternative for breast reconstruction that is all you, all natural. No artificial implants are needed and muscle function is preserved.
Instead, with today’s advanced microsurgical techniques, tissues from your abdomen or buttocks may be used to restore the natural contour, feel and size of your breast. Natural reconstruction also can restore your feelings of confidence in day or evening clothes, swim suits and lingerie.
Whether you’re facing a mastectomy or your procedure was completed months or years ago, natural reconstruction may be an attractive option.
Since muscle function can be preserved, recovery may be faster than with older reconstructive techniques. Patients may return to work and normal activities within four weeks, depending on the type of surgery required.
