Helping Women Make Smart, Informed Choices.

 

At the Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction, we know that women’s bodies and emotional selves are inextricably linked. There isn’t a question we haven’t been asked; nor a concern we haven’t helped women and their loved ones manage. From financial questions to intimacy issues, we’re here to help.

If you have been told you must sacrifice any of your important muscles to have breast reconstruction, you owe it to yourself to seek an additional opinion. If you have had implant reconstruction, radiation, and problem with your results, natural tissue reconstruction may be a very good solution.

We’re about more than reconstructing breasts, we’re about restoring lives.

My sister also about a year ago. Best decision I’ve made and would
do it again. Dr. Craigie is the best!”

DIEP Flap

The DIEP flap is the most frequently used type of perforator surgery for breast reconstruction because of the tummy tuck benefit that can be part of the process.

GAP Flap

Women who are thin or who have minimal tummy tissue can also benefit from this procedure. In the GAP Flap, tissue is taken from the buttock area.

PAP Flap

PAP Flap is know as the profunda artery perforator flap, and utilizes the tissues of the upper thigh to reconstruct the breast following mastectomy.

Innovative Procedures

Learn about alternative procedures using tissue from under the arms, “love handles”, outer leg and upper outer tummy.

ReSensation™

Utilize donated nerve tissue that attaches to a patients remaining new tissue in the affected area. 

3D Nipple Tattoo

The 3-D nipple tattoo is a work of art that looks like an authentic nipple. Artistic skills make the tattoos look just like real nipples.
