Growing numbers of breast cancer survivors have come to know that they have choices in breast reconstruction, whether they have had a lumpectomy or mastectomy. Breast reconstruction can and should be planned and performed in sync with breast removal, as often the skin and nipple areas can be retained to improve the more natural appearance of the reconstructed breast. There are many options that Dr. DiGeronimo will be pleased to discuss with you, in tailoring your wishes to the best possible outcome.
It’s important to know, as well, that the law is on your side! Insurance companies are mandated to help cover breast reconstruction surgeries, including procedures for the non-affected breast to achieve the desired symmetry between breasts. There is also no statute of limitations; you can have breast reconstruction done even years after your breast removal surgery. Whatever your need for breast reconstruction, Dr. DiGeronimo can help!
