Before & After Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Lacerna in Sarasota specializes the reconstruction of a breast that has been partially removed (lumpectomy) or completely removed (mastectomy) for cancer treatment or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today.

New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast.

Who are the Best Candidates for Breast Reconstruction.

The best candidates for Breast Reconstruction are women whose cancer, as far as can be determined, seems to have been eliminated by mastectomy, although most mastectomy patients are medically appropriate for Breast Reconstruction. Still, there are legitimate reasons to wait. Some women are not comfortable weighing all the Breast Reconstruction options while they’re struggling to cope with the diagnosis of breast cancer. Others simply don’t want to have any more Breast Reconstruction surgery beyond what is required to eliminate the cancer.

Some patients may be advised by Dr. Lacerna or their oncologists to wait, particularly while finishing radiation or chemotherapy. Women with other health conditions, such as obesity, heart and lung problems, high blood pressure, diabetes or smoking, may also be advised to wait.

Decisions about your Breast Reconstruction.

You can begin talking about Breast Reconstruction as soon as you’re diagnosed with cancer. Ideally, you’ll want Dr. Lacerna in Sarasota County to develop a strategy that will put you in the best possible condition for breast reconstruction. After evaluating your health, she will explain which reconstructive options are most appropriate for your age, health, anatomy, tissues, and goals. Be sure to discuss your expectations frankly with her. She will be equally frank with you, describing your options and the risks and limitations of each.

I believe that a sense of well-being stems from feeling good, looking good, and having meaning and accomplishment in your life.
