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 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!
