Breast Reconstruction Plastic Surgery
Losing breasts to cancer or any trauma can be life-altering. It is more than just a cosmetic concern. Many women are constantly reminded of their experience every time they look down at their chest, having an emotional impact. The choice to have breast reconstruction plastic surgery is very personal, and it is vital to have the right surgeon to perform this surgical breast procedure. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg at Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC is a double board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in breast reconstruction for breast cancer and trauma survivors.
Breast cancer is the most common cause of breast tissue loss. A mastectomy is used to remove the breast tissue to stop the cancer from spreading to other areas of the body. Depending on the surgery performed, skin and the nipples may also be removed, but some patients are able to retain these elements.
Breast reconstruction surgery is one of the most complex breast plastic surgeries, as it requires rebuilding the breast form from scratch. This can include fat, skin and tissue grafting with elements harvested from other areas of the body. Implants may also be used to create the desired volume and shape of the breasts, and nipple reconstruction may be necessary.
Dr. Shteynberg has extensive expertise in breast plastic surgery with special attention paid to breast reconstruction surgery. Since 2015, Dr. Shteynberg has been serving as a director of plastic surgery service at Kings County Hospital, where he performs a wide variety of surgeries with a concentration on breast restoration for breast cancer patients. His meticulous artistry creating beautiful, natural-appearing breasts for his patients have earned him a stellar reputation as one of NYC’s top breast plastic surgeons.
