Breast Reconstruction Surgery in Maryland
Serving Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland, Plastic Surgery Services know that understanding your breast reconstruction options can offer a sense of hope for women who have undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy, or for those beginning breast cancer treatment. Plastic surgery can restore your breasts through a variety of ways, either through implant-based reconstruction or autologous (tissue-only) reconstruction. In some cases, the reconstructive process can begin at the same time as your mastectomy, allowing you to wake from your mastectomy with a new breast mound already in place. In other instances, reconstruction can be performed at a later date.
Maryland plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Garazo is a skilled plastic surgeon offering several breast reconstruction options to women after mastectomy. He can not only restore the cancer-affected breast, but reduce, enhance, or lift the other breast to create a symmetrical appearance. Dr. Garazo will work with you and your medical team to create a reconstructive strategy to fit your individual situation. Dr. Garazo and his staff understand that the decision to have breast reconstruction is a personal one. Dr. Garazo can help you understand your options, empowering you to create the strategy that is best for you.
Breast reconstruction must be covered by an insurance policy that covers mastectomy, according to federal law. This insurance includes both the restoration of the cancer-affected breast and surgery on the other breast to create a symmetrical appearance, as well as prostheses and physical complications during all stages of your mastectomy.
For those considering a breast reconstruction, Dr. Garazo invites you to explore your options through a patient consultation. To schedule a consultation at Plastic Surgery Services, contact us online or call (301) 791-1800.
