Des Moines, Iowa Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure performed on women to rebuild the breast’s shape in conjunction with or after a mastectomy. Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other diseases is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures to both you and our Plastic Surgeons. New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for Dr. Bergman and Dr. Folkers to create a breast that can come close in both form and appearance to your natural breast.
Often times the patient can pick the “new size” she wishes to become. Reconstruction is possible immediately following breast removal (mastectomy), so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all. There are often many options to consider as you and our Surgeons explore what’s best for you. Dr. Bergman and Dr. Folkers will spend the time needed during your consultation to explain in detail all these the options.
