For the best possible result, Dr. Borra will perform breast reconstruction under anesthesia.
You and Dr. Borra will choose the right technique
Reconstruction with implants
Dr. Borra will reconstruct the breasts with breast implants, such as those used for cosmetic breast augmentation. One can resort to an acellular reconstructive tissue matrix over the prosthesis to support tissue regeneration and safeguard the prosthesis.
Reconstruction with flap surgery
It is employed especially after radiotherapy and in general when the chest tissues are too thin. The flaps are made of a section of tissue, subcutaneous tissue, muscle groups and sometimes also of muscle. They are taken from the abdomen and the back and are relocated on the chest where they are modeled.
Born from oncology and plastic surgery fused together, it’s a technique that Dr. Borra uses to reconstruct the breast in case of partial removal. The remaining breast is shaped to compensate for that removed.
