Breast reconstruction is an important milestone in breast cancer recovery, helping to renew the patient’s body and spirit. Dallas breast reconstruction patients choose the procedure as a way of feeling whole again and having their appearance reflect their true selves—not their illness.

Our Approach to Reconstruction

Texas Center for Breast Reconstruction in Dallas, TX uses a very individualized treatment method:

  • We get to know our patients, their goals, and their preferences.
  • Our surgeons provide the information that patients need to make an informed decision.
  • We consult with breast surgeons, oncologists, and the patients’ other doctors about the path to recovery.
  • Our team recommends a surgical approach to suit each patient’s needs.

Throughout the experience, we offer attentive and supportive treatment to provide those in our care with greater comfort and confidence.

It is our goal to provide each patient with as much information as possible to assist them in making an informed decision regarding the reconstructive options. This site is designed to assist in that process.

Reconstruction and the Breast Cancer Recovery Timeline

Surgeons with Texas Center for Breast Reconstruction work in consultation with the patient and the patient's doctors to plan and schedule procedures. This allows us to coordinate with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other aspects of breast cancer recovery. Typically, patients have the initial breast reconstruction surgery at one of two times:

  • Immediately following the mastectomy while the patient is still under general anesthesia.
  • In a separate surgical session.

Our doctors typically recommend breast reconstruction immediately following mastectomy because the tissue and skin are more malleable. However, we can achieve excellent results with either approach.

Breast Reconstruction Procedures

Breast reconstruction usually takes place in two stages. The first operation is usually the longest and most complex, while patients can typically have the second stage completed on an outpatient basis.

Once patients choose to have breast reconstruction, our surgeons help them to determine the right approach. This may include:

  • Breast expanders / implants.
  • A combination of implants with muscle or soft tissue flaps.
  • Muscle or soft tissue flaps alone.
  • Muscle or soft tissue flaps transferred using microsurgical techniques.

Please review our procedure pages to learn more about each option.
