For patients who have lost one or both breasts to cancer, reconstruction offers the opportunity for us to create a soft, natural looking breast. This procedure can be performed at the time of mastectomy or a later date with a breast implant, so your new breasts will look natural and restore symmetry to your body.
While many breast cancer patients opt not to have reconstructive surgery to restore their original look, we do ask potential patients to consider their options. If you are still active in work and recreational activities, or have had trouble resuming romantic relationships, breast reconstruction and plastic surgery can help you through the transitions you have had to face. Dr. Kanter is available to consult with you and discuss the available breast implants for your procedure. If you had considered an augmentation before your cancer, you have the option of receiving a larger breast size – either for a double mastectomy, or for a single plus the augmentation of your other mammary glad to match.
Please contact us at 757-827-8486 today to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Kanter. We are located in Hampton, VA and our helpful and professional staff will provide you with a discreet and caring experience, and guide you toward this important decision for yourself and your body. We provide reconstructive surgery to patients in and around Hampton, Norfolk, Newport News, Chesapeake, Williamsburg, and Virginia Beach.
