Breast Reconstruction

Premier Plastic Surgeon in Knoxville, TN

Breast Reconstruction in Knoxville, TN

At Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery, we specialize in state of the art breast reconstruction surgery. 

It is one of Dr. Lo’s greatest pleasures as a plastic surgeon based in Tennessee to help women who have shown courage to battle breast cancer and want to recreate beautiful, natural-looking breasts. The team at Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery understands the emotional journey and believe that breast reconstruction can play a significant role in confidently living your life.

Breast Reconstruction Procedure

There are many factors to consider when making decisions about your breast reconstruction: your body type, your pre-cancer breast size and shape, the type of cancer treatment you had and your goals.  

Breast reconstruction often involves multiple procedures, performed in stages. Your reconstruction may start at the same time as your mastectomy, or it may be delayed until you have recovered from mastectomy and any other additional cancer treatments.

Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction

One way to reconstruct the breasts is using implants. Reconstruction with an implant usually requires tissue expansion, which stretches the healthy skin in order to adequately cover the implant.

Flap Techniques

Another way is a flap technique in which tissues are used from other parts (e.g., the abdomen, back or buttocks). A common flap technique is the TRAM flap, which uses muscle, skin and fat from the abdomen. The flap may be tunneled up through the chest wall, remaining attached to its original blood supply, or it may be completely detached and then placed on the chest to recreate the breast mound. Instead of a tissue expander, flap techniques may be used to cover breast implants in some cases.

Reconstructive Nipple Surgery

If mastectomy has necessitated the removal of the nipple, the surgeon can take skin from another part of the body and fashion it into a permanent replacement nipple. In order to produce natural-looking results, the newly created nipple can be tattooed with a pigment that complements your skin tone.

In the first consultation, Dr. Lo will listen to you and discuss the breast reconstruction methods.
