What Is Implant Reconstruction?
Implant Reconstruction restores the shape and volume of your breast using saline or silicone breast implants. The implant is inserted above or below the pectoralis muscle and the overall procedure can occur during the time of a mastectomy or in a delayed fashion.
Where Will My Surgery be Performed?
Implant reconstruction surgery is usually performed in the hospital and a brief hospital stay may be included. General anesthesia is used, and the doctor will discuss his recommendations during your initial visit. Any follow-up procedures are usually done on an outpatient basis.
How Much Does Implant Reconstruction Cost?Each individual situation is unique, but many insurance companies provide coverage for breast reconstruction when it is performed under a breast cancer diagnosis. It’s best to check with your particular insurance provider to find out for sure. Cost will be discussed during your consultation. We offer a number of ways to pay, including financing with CareCredit®.
