Breast Reconstruction is a complex and often multi-step procedure. If you are a candidate for reconstruction the surgery will be coordinated with your breast surgeon. Often Dr. Jagruti Patel works with the oncologic breast surgeon to optimize your result.
Dr. Jagruti Patel is performing reconstructions after nipple sparing mastectomies or skin sparing mastectomies (when indicated). She is also performing oncoplastic reconstructions on select patients.
Breast reconstruction can be simplified into those reconstructions done using your own tissue verses using implants. Dr. Jagruti Patel will spend a considerate amount of time explaining the differences between these types of reconstructions and will formulate an individualized plan towards your reconstruction.
