Fighting breast cancer requires a team of qualified professionals and having an experienced plastic surgeon on your side is critical to restore your form, function, and sense of self. Dr. Fisher has extensive experience with breast preservation surgery, oncoplastic reconstruction, as well as implant-based and autologous breast reconstruction.
The Details of Your Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Breast reconstruction is a highly unique surgery, and no two procedures are ever the same. Different patients will require different procedures to treat breast cancer and will have different goals for their breast reconstruction. Dr. Fisher will work closely with you and your breast surgeon to design a treatment plan for you.
For patients who are scheduled to undergo a partial mastectomy, also known as a lumpectomy, Dr. Fisher will work with your breast surgeon to restore your breast shape and symmetry at the time of your surgery.
Patients scheduled for complete mastectomy will often undergo reconstruction at the same time as the mastectomy with either implants, or their own tissue.
