Each year, the doctors and staff at The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction meet hundreds of women who have lost one or both breasts to mastectomy. While each of these women is a unique individual, we do see common concerns.
Concerns such as: “Will I ever feel normal again? What type of reconstruction is right for me? Am I silly, or vain, to consider natural breast reconstruction?”
We also work with women seeking preventive mastectomy, as a result of their family history, genetic testing, or precancerous condition. Prophylactic mastectomy is increasingly common, and we help these patients secure the best possible reconstruction results.
Hidden Scar Mastectomy
We serve women around the country with the following concerns:
Each year, millions of women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to the billions of dollars spent on research, and the countless hours researchers devote, we expect that someday, breast cancer will be a thing of the past. Until then, we are heartened to see that diagnoses are made earlier than ever, leading to extraordinary survival rates. Breast cancer treatments are improving every day. We know that a healthy lifestyle -- no smoking and eating low-fat foods -- can go a long way toward preventing breast cancer.
While researchers continue to seek a cure for cancers, others are focused on the ways that we can all help prevent them from ever occurring. It may never be entirely possible to prevent cancer, but it is possible that understanding many of its triggers can lead each of us to make healthier choices.
Fix / Repair
Months or years have passed since your mastectomy or breast surgery. When the swelling and bruising finally faded, you were left with something that just "didn't work." Sometimes mastectomies, reconstructive surgeries, and implant-based reconstruction simply don't work as well as you hoped, nor as well as they should.
