Case #81 Details
At 52 years of age this Long Island woman was shocked to learn of an early stage breast cancer on the left side, as well as abnormal cells on the right. She had no family history of breast cancer and she was a healthy wife and mother of two up until her diagnosis by an abnormal mammogram. She made the decision to undergo bilateral mastectomies in order to assure a cure and to avoid further mammograms and biopsies.
Fortunately, her breast surgeon was able to preserve her nipples. Also, we were able to fully reconstruct the patient using Silicone Gel Implants, and Alloderm (a human skin-derived product) immediately at the time of her mastectomies. This is sometimes called the Direct to Implant method. Her post-operative course proceeded without problems. She spent one night in the hospital after surgery, but was back driving at a week.
Her post-operative photographs show her several months after surgery. As her incisions were around the areola she hardly looks as though she had any surgery at all. Most importantly, she has peace of mind.
If you are interested in learning more about breast reconstruction call Dr. James Romanelli at our Huntington Long Island office to schedule your complimentary consultation today. 631-424-3600.
Surgeon: Dr. James N. Romanelli
