We specialize in state-of-the-art breast reconstruction techniques using your body’s own tissue without sacrificing important functional muscles.

Considered the most advanced in the world today, our procedures result in a breast that closely matches your own in shape and softness.

3 months

The nipple and areola are created approximately three months after your breast reconstruction.  Nipple reconstruction is done under local anesthesia and only takes 30-45 minutes to complete.  The areola is done through a tattoo process, which makes the surrounding skin the colour of a nature areola.  Each tattoo can take one hour and may need to be done one or two additional times to achieve the right colour.

FREQUENTLY SECONDARY REVISIONAL SURGERY IS NEEDED ON THE RECONSTRUCIED BREAST, THE OPPOSITE BREAST OR THE ABDOMEN.  THIS WILL BE DECIDED WITH YOU DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.  MOST OF THESE SURGERIES ARE OUTPATIENT SURGERIES AND USUALLY LAST LESS THEN 2 HOURS.  OFTEN THESE SURGERIES ARE DONE TO ENHANCE THE FINAL OUTCOME FOR THE BREAST RECONSTRUCTION OR THE ABDOMINAL INCISIONS.
