A mastectomy need not make you feel less feminine, as there are several options for breast reconstruction. The goal of breast reconstruction is to improve the shape or restore the size of the affected breast or breasts. The aim is to match the new breast with the original one either using an implant or with tissue from another part of your body.
Reconstruction procedures can be carried out at the same time as the mastectomy or years afterwards, depending on your individual circumstances. There are frequently steps or phases to reconstruction. You can even have a new nipple complex constructed.
Having had breast cancer is difficult enough without having to worry about how you look as well. Dr. Benjamin Lam has extensive experience in breast reconstruction procedures. He has authored a clinical white paper documenting his pioneering techniques in nipple reconstruction. Dr. Lam partners with your breast surgeon. He coordinates with you directly to plan the reconstructive steps through to your full recovery. Dr. Lam and his staff care deeply for each of their breast cancer patients as they share the reconstructive process.
Dr. Lam is an excellent surgeon. He is also very warm and kind with his patients..He thoroughly knows what he’s doing and how to get the best job done. I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Lam did my breast augmentation 6 months ago. I am very happy with the results. They\’re PERFECT ? I definitely recommend him.
Dr. Lam did my tram flap reconstruction following my bilateral mastectomy in 2009. Not only did he do a wonderful reconstruction on me, but the caring and compassion shown to me by Dr. Lam and his staff during that very difficult time is something I will always be grateful for. I would recommend Dr. Lam in a heartbeat!
Dr Lam is an incredible doctor. He was knowledgeable, informative and caring. I highly recommend him to anyone thinking of getting breast augmentation/lift. I was very happy with my results!
Dr Lam did my reconstruction after having a bilateral mastectomy due to breast cancer at 35 years of age. He was very compassionate, professional and made sure I was comfortable in my body again! Would recommend to anyone!
Dr. Lam did my tummy tuck 14 months ago. I am so happy with the results. It was just the way I dreamed it would be.
I had a wonderful experience and Dr. Lam did a beautiful job on my body!! So happy!!
dr did my eyelid lift. he was awesome and will always recommend him!
I had my surgery in march of 2015. My nipples on my breast augmentation did not turn out well. They protrude like acorns so I can’t go braless. One of the reasons I had a breast lift. Not to mention I’m really self contuios in intimate situations. They are so ugly! My hips from my tummy tuck are asymmetrical. One is higher then the other because of my scar. I still have dog ears!! My liposuction on my lower tummy is still to fatty. My liposuction on the upper flanks did not reduce the fat that I wanted. Just wish I could get the bbl or implants i wanted to regain the coke bottle shape I truly wanted. I wish I could start over. I am a gastric bypass patient who is just not happy. I will go to atl or nyc next time. No shade. NJ/PA not ready for the look todays women of color want. The more I research the more I see better doctors with the the results I’m looking for. Not to mention my lower body. My inner thighs and legs look awful. He couldn’t treat them. I see so much from Atlanta and New York on this treatment. Definitely not going back to PA.
Dr. Lam did my breast Aug almost 10 years ago (I was 20 yrs old at the time) and I will definitely be going back to him soon for a replacement. I originally went to see him alone, but then my mother had fears about the procedure and Dr. Lam had my mom and I come in together (a 2nd consultation) and he kindly answered all her questions etc. He is so professional, talented, and beyond nice! I don\’t regret my procedure at all. A++++
I had him do my breast and asked him to fix them he said no they are still alit of skin not what I wanted
Dr.Lam is wonderful. I had an abdominoplasty over 2 months ago and he and his staff have been great every step of the way. From answering any and all questions to leaving me with a low cut scar which has healed beautifully. I would highly recommend him as he was recommended to me as well by 2 of my friends.
I had a breast reduction surgery, from ur partner yrs ago, absolutely loved him…. U guys make dreams come true….
This Doctor is amazing. Word can’t describe his work
