The Advanced Breast Reconstruction Program includes four of the country’s top plastic surgeons:
They offer the full spectrum of breast reconstruction options and have refined techniques for natural tissue reconstruction involving microsurgery, such as DIEP.
Our doctors want to help you determine the best course of action for your individual situation. Your MUSC plastic surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits of available procedures with you and your family and friends. Your surgeon also will evaluate your overall health and body type while accounting for further cancer treatment. We will talk to you about your preferences and your available time so you can make the most informed decision regarding your reconstruction options.
For those patients who are having natural tissue reconstruction with microsurgery, two surgeons will be on hand during the main procedure to ensure you receive the best possible care. In any case, your main surgeon will monitor your progress while you are in the hospital and later on may make adjustments to your reconstructed breast or to your other breast to help achieve symmetry.
