Breast reconstruction can be a very rewarding procedure for women who have lost a breast due to illness, disease, or accident. At our Kansas City, Missouri, plastic surgery facility, Dr. Fred Thompson performs breast reconstruction with skill and compassion.
Losing a breast can be very traumatic for a woman. Clothing options and certain activities become limited. Breast reconstruction creates a new breast form and shape similar to the woman’s natural breast. Breast reconstruction can restore a woman’s natural curves and allow her to wear her normal clothes, undergarments, and bathing suits. Breast reconstruction can also help restore a woman’s self-esteem and confidence.
Breast reconstruction is often performed as a series of surgeries that occur over several months. The procedure may involve the use of only the woman’s own tissue or may require the use of breast implants. At his Kansas City, Missouri center, Dr. Thompson helps patients decide which breast reconstruction procedure will best meet their needs.
Breast surgery can also be used to help women whose breasts are asymmetrical. If breasts are asymmetrical and different in size, Dr. Thompson can combine different surgical techniques with fat grafting or breast implants at his Kansas City center to give the breasts a similar appearance in size and shape.
