Breast reconstruction is a specialty of Dr DeRosa’s that she holds pride in. The diagnosis of breast cancer can be devastating news and an overwhelming time for patients and their families. Having a supportive surgeon such as Dr DeRosa to get you through the reconstructive phase can make a world of difference.
Breast reconstruction can be achieved through several techniques, all with the goal of restoring a breast to near normal shape, size and symmetry following mastectomy.
Some patients are not aware of this fact but if only one breast is affected, it alone may be reconstructed. In addition, a breast lift/reduction/augmentation may be performed on the opposite breast to achieve symmetry and is covered by insurance plans!
