Breast Reconstruction in Charleston County, SC
Breast cancer is a scary experience that no woman should have to endure. In addition to the treatments, a woman often has to undergo a mastectomy or breast removal surgery. After a mastectomy, breast reconstruction is the surgical way to achieve natural looking, full breasts again. Led by plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery has offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head, South Carolina. We offer breast reconstruction (mastopexy) for women who live in Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities.
What Is Breast Reconstruction (Mastopexy)?
Breast reconstruction is a plastic surgery procedure for women who have undergone a single or double mastectomy. Following breast cancer treatment, the last thing women should worry about is feeling beautiful or feminine. Dr. Schimpf offers breast reconstruction to help women feel like the beautiful survivors they are, without the need for more worry or stress. This is a safe, effective procedure to help women feel strong and beautiful after a mastectomy.
Breast reconstruction involves the placement of an implant to fill out the existing breast tissue. Depending on your breast tissue and the size of your natural breasts, Dr. Schimpf will determine how large the implants can be and let you choose the implant size and shape with which you feel most comfortable.
Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction allows women to achieve the most natural-looking breasts possible following a mastectomy. From the nipples to the size and shape of the breast, no aspect of breast reconstruction will be left unconsidered by Dr. Schimpf. Following breast reconstruction surgery, women can feel enhanced confidence and femininity, but most importantly, like themselves once again.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Breast Reconstruction?
Unlike many plastic surgeries that are elective, breast reconstruction requires medical considerations. Dr. Schimpf will work closely with your other care providers to determine if breast reconstruction is the safest and most beneficial choice for you. All decisions and information will be discussed with you during your consultation to help you make the most informed decision possible. If you are a strong candidate for breast reconstruction, Dr. Schimpf will consult your doctor to determine the right timing for the procedure. In some cases, it can be performed during the mastectomy to prevent having to undergo two surgeries.
How Much Does Breast Reconstruction Cost in Charleston County?
The cost of a mastopexy will depend completely on the details of your procedure. To make the entire experience as stress-free as possible for you, the cost and scope of your procedure will be discussed with you at your initial consultation. We will go over your payment options, which includes financing through CareCredit®. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards and ask that full payment be made prior to your services.
