Milwaukee Breast Reconstruction Specialist – Dr. Loewenstein
Many women who have undergone mastectomy feel self-conscious about the appearance of their breasts post-procedure. Until recent years, these women did not have a permanent option that would restore symmetry and feminine curves – patients instead relied on bra padding and inserts. Nowadays, however, there is a procedure called breast reconstruction that can essentially rebuild the affected breast, thus immensely boosting the self-esteem of patients.
Breast reconstruction may be performed at the time of the mastectomy, or it may be delayed until a later time, depending on the individual circumstances of the case. Depending on your unique case, Dr. Loewenstein, a leading Milwaukee breast reconstruction specialist, will either use an implant-supported approach (in which a saline-filled or silicone implant is inserted under the muscle of the chest) or will fashion a new, natural-looking breast from your own tissue. This is commonly known as a TRAM flap. Because there are so many factors involved, Dr. Loewenstein will meet with you personally to devise an appropriate treatment plan.
Breast reconstruction is commonly performed on women who have had a mastectomy (removal of the breast due to cancer or precancerous condition) or who have breast deformities. Many women feel very insecure or self-conscious about the appearance of their breasts following mastectomy. As a skilled Milwaukee breast reconstruction surgeon, Dr. Loewenstein uses the procedure to help patients regain their womanly figure and improve their quality of life.
