Breast Reconstruction can treat many different variations of breast problems, but the most common application is after lumpectomy or mastectomy for breast cancer.
In the case of lumpectomy, oftentimes a procedure very similar to a breast reduction or breast lift can be done in order to improve the size and shape of the breasts while simultaneously treating the cancer.
In the case of mastectomy, total breast reconstruction is performed which involves creation of a breast mound and shape, as well as nipple and areolar reconstruction. This can be done with implants or your own tissue – sometimes both.

Using a customized combination of surgical techniques, Dr. Correa can correct the changes that result from mastectomy or lumpectomy, or due to asymmetrical breasts and more.
