What is Breast Reconstruction?
Know Your Post-Mastectomy Options
Breast reconstruction surgery is plastic surgery which restores one or both of the breasts to their normal shape, appearance, symmetry and size following mastectomy, lumpectomy or other deformities. It is often performed in stages and can either begin at the time of mastectomy or be delayed until a later date.
Implant and Flap Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction generally falls into two categories: implant based or flap reconstruction. Implant reconstruction utilizes breast implants to help form a new breast mound. Flap reconstruction uses the patient’s own tissue from another part of the body to form a new breast. All our physicians at Illume Cosmetic Surgery are familiar with both approaches and will help guide you towards the option that best fits your needs and desires.
The surgeons of Illume Cosmetic Surgery have a close relationship with the ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Breast Center that has lasted over 2 decades with hundreds of cases performed. Dr. Chris Hussussian was the Chief of Surgery for ProHealth Waukesha for four years. During that time, he led the surgical department in collaboration the physicians at Illume to establish the highest quality breast reconstruction in the Milwaukee area.
After reconstruction, we partner with Rosie Wells of Permanent Makeup for 3D nipple tattooing to give you full confidence in yourself again.
To make this procedure accessible to all our patients we provide Financing options.
