Breast reconstruction is one of the most rewarding procedures performed at our center. Advancements in technology and synthetic materials allow us to potentially create a breast that looks and feels completely natural.
There are many options available in breast reconstruction. These include immediate versus delayed reconstruction, and the use of your own body’s tissue to recreate a breast versus the use of a tissue expander followed by placement of a permanent implant. The pros and cons of each option as well as the risks and benefits of each procedure will be thoroughly discussed. These surgeries are performed under general anesthesia and a brief hospital stay may be required.
Dr. Aric Eckhardt will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan to best suit your needs. The first few weeks after your reconstruction, you can expect to feel tired and sore. However, pain medication will relieve most of your discomfort. To learn more about the details of breast reconstruction, contact Dr. Aric Eckhardt in Moline, Illinois, today. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
