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 dedicated to ensuring women are offered all possible options of breast reconstruction when facing mastectomy. While our practice emphasis is on reconstruction utilizing your own tissue, we believe it is our responsibility to provide information on all options available, allowing women to make a smart informed choice as to which method they feel is best for them. We are available to answer questions no matter what stage of the process a woman may be. We’re about more than reconstructing breasts, we’re about restoring lives.

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

I am so excited. This evening when I got home from work and was changing clothes, I look downward and what I saw was so great. Apparently, my flap is beginning to drop some and what I saw was a breast. I pushed up my right breast and they looked like kissin’-cousins. I’ve not noticed this before and I have to admit this has brought tears to my eyes. What a welcome site. I never thought this day would come. I can see all the potential and I am more excited than ever. I keep looking down just to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. I even have cleavage. What a wonderful change. Miraculous. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

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.
