Reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery in Essex

When all the breast tissue or part of the breast tissue has been removed as part of breast cancer surgery, there are a number of ways that the breast can be reshaped.  These techniques are based on using implants alone, remoulding a breast shape from existing body tissue or a combination of the two processes to recreate a breast similar in size and shape to the original.  The other breast can also be modified to match, so there are no differences in symmetry and shape. 

Offering both immediate and delayed reconstructive breast surgery, Mr Smith can advise on which technique would be most appropriate in each individual case.  He also provides aesthetic cosmetic breast procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast uplift surgery and male breast reduction.

Reconstructive breast surgery treatments

  • Skin sparing mastoectomy
  • Immediate breast reconstruction
  • Delayed breast reconstruction
  • Latissimus dorsi reconstruction
  • Extended latissimus dorsi reconstruction
  • Implant based reconstruction
  • Acellular dermal matirx (adm) – strattice / surgimend
  • Diep flap and tug flap with microvascular plastic surgeon


Therapeutic mammoplasty

Mr Smith is experienced in therapeutic mammoplasty, a new technique that avoids the need for a mastectomy in suitable patients.  The technique combines a very wide local excision of a tumour with a breast reducing procedure to model the remaining healthy tissue into a more aesthetically pleasing shape.  Combined with reshaping of the unaffected breast, therapeutic mammoplasty results in smaller, firmer symmetrical breasts, and is a useful technique for women with large tumours or those with a relatively small tumour in a large breast.
