What is Breast Reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction encompasses many different types of procedures to restore the natural size and shape of a breast. Reconstruction may be performed following breast cancer surgery such as mastectomy or lumpectomy, or for congenital or developmental abnormalities of the breast. Recreating the natural appearance of the breast plays an important role in the healing process for women as they progress through their breast cancer treatment. Dr. Zafar strives to achieve symmetry and natural-looking results while taking into consideration the goals and concerns of each individual patient. Every patient is different and there is no single breast reconstruction method that is best suited to all women. We welcome you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Zafar to discuss your reconstructive options.
