The decision to have breast reconstruction is extremely personal. Often times, the procedure is being considered as a result of life-changing circumstances. We are here to help you through the process and put your mind at ease.
Breast Reconstruction For Additional Conditions
Breast reconstruction encompasses various procedures tailored to address specific concerns and conditions in addition to mastectomies. Some common situations we help patients with include:
Breast Asymmetry Correction
This procedure aims to balance the size, shape, and position of uneven breasts, often involving breast augmentation or reduction on one or both sides, as well as adjustments to the areola size and placement. Dr. Lisa J. Learn may employ various surgical techniques, including breast implants, fat transfer, or breast lift, to achieve symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing results.
Tubular Breast Deformity
Tubular breasts have a unique appearance characterized by narrow, elongated shape and a constricted base. Correcting tubular breast deformity typically involves breast augmentation to increase volume and reshape the breasts, often accompanied by adjustments to the breast tissue and nipple-areola complex. Dr. Learn utilizes her expertise in breast surgery to create natural and proportionate outcomes.
Symmastia occurs when breast implants or natural breast tissue merge, creating a "uni-boob" appearance. Repairing symmastia involves careful repositioning of the breast implants or tissue to restore the natural separation between the breasts. Dr. Learn employs precise techniques to address this condition, ensuring that the breasts maintain their individual contour and symmetry.
