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!
