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
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.
