Our plastic surgeons provide reconstruction following cancer treatment. State-of-the-art microsurgery allows many women to use their own tissues to refashion a breast, whereas other patients are best treated with implant reconstruction. Our expertise means that your surgery is tailored for your needs and anatomy.
