Regaining a Sense of Self 

There are moments in our journey when we stop and take stock. Could now be a time for deeper healing? Am I ready to make that change I’ve long considered? Breast reconstruction in Chicago restores breast shape, appearance, symmetry, and size after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. It can restore symmetry between the two breasts by replacing skin, breast tissue, and the removed nipple. The amount of reconstruction will depend on the mastectomy and the width, size, and location of the removed tumor. We strive to make sure that your breast reconstruction results in a breast shape that looks as natural as possible.

Is a Breast Reconstruction Procedure Right for Me?

We know that arriving at this decision can be a difficult one. We’re here to help at every step along the way. Typically, clients who elect to have this procedure include:

  • Women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy due to breast cancer or other medical conditions
  • Women who have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer and have undergone a prophylactic mastectomy
  • Women who have experienced trauma or injury to the breast

How the Procedure Works

During your breast reconstruction procedure, our team of experienced plastic surgeons will work to rebuild your breasts using a variety of techniques, including breast implants, tissue expanders, and autologous reconstruction. The procedure typically involves multiple stages, with the initial surgery being followed by additional procedures to refine the shape and symmetry of the breasts. Our team will work with you to determine the best approach for your needs and goals, and we will explain the procedure in detail, including any potential risks and benefits. If you choose to undergo breast reconstruction using implants, our team will place a silicone or saline implant beneath the chest muscle or breast tissue. If you choose to undergo autologous reconstruction, our team will use tissue from another part of your body to rebuild the breasts. This may involve removing tissue from your abdomen, back, or buttocks and transplanting it to your breasts.

Recovery and Results

The recovery period varies depending on the type of procedure you undergo. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for yourself after surgery, including how to manage pain, dressings, and drains. In general, you can expect to experience some discomfort and swelling for the first week or two after surgery.

You may also experience some bruising, which should subside within a few weeks and we can provide you with pain medication to help manage any discomfort you may experience. You will need to avoid strenuous activities for several weeks after surgery, and you will need to wear a supportive bra or compression garment to help minimize swelling.

Most women can start to get back to normal activities within 6 to 8 weeks. If implants are used without flaps, your recovery time may be shorter. The results of breast reconstruction surgery can vary depending on the type of procedure you undergo, but in general, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance and feel of your breasts.

Our team will work to rebuild your breasts using techniques that are tailored to your needs and goals, and we will strive to achieve a natural-looking result that complements your body shape and size. Breast reconstruction surgery can help restore your confidence and sense of wholeness, and we are here to guide you every step of the way.
