Breast Reconstruction Case #116
Case #116 Details
This 52 year mother of 3 and full time career woman from Long Island came to our Huntington practice after being referred by a local breast surgeon. She was to undergo a bilateral, nipple sparing mastectomy and wanted to know her options for reconstruction.
Upon examination, Dr. Romanelli recommended a ‘direct to implant’ reconstruction. He would follow the breast surgeon and on the same day, immediately following the mastectomy, place silicone gel implants with some additional fat grafting to add a soft, natural look and feel to the breasts. The patient opted for 350 cc silicone gel implants, taking her from her original small b-cup size to a full c cup. With one overnight stay at the hospital, she was recovering comfortably at home by the next evening.
The patient is thrilled with her results and is feeling great! To learn more about breast cancer reconstruction, or a correction of an unsatisfactory reconstruction, call our East Main Street office at 631-424-3600. Visit our website at www.jrcs.com.
Surgeon: Dr. James N. Romanelli
