Who is a Candidate for Breast Reconstruction?
The simple answer to this question is nearly ALL patients are candidates for some form of breast reconstruction.
The choice for breast reconstruction is a personal one that should be based on a foundation of sound medical information and guidance. To achieve this goal, we invite you to attend our regularly scheduled educational series on breast reconstruction that reviews all types of breast reconstruction from tissue expansion / breast implants to microsurgical flaps (DIEP/SIEA/SGAP/IGAP/TUG) and vascularized lymph node transfer for lymphedema.
Dr. Marga has offered breast reconstruction for hundreds of patients between the ages of 16 and 83 in the setting of congenital breast disorders (Polandís Syndrome, Pectus Excavatum), breast cancer and traumatic injuries to the breast. She would be pleased to work with you and your primary care physician to develop a safe and effective treatment plan that addresses all of your personal needs.
