Breast Reconstruction Consultation
Serving Patients in Jacksonville, Florida
During your first consultation with Dr. Desai, he will explain the benefits and risks of both immediate and delayed breast reconstruction. He will evaluate the pathology of your breast cancer and help guide you into deciding on whether to proceed with breast reconstruction at the time of mastectomy or after all of your treatment is completed.
A discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of implant based and autologous (using your own tissue) breast reconstruction will ensue. He will then take several measurements and perform a physical examination in order for him to make a recommendation.
You will have an individualized surgical plan that will incorporate a multitude of factors including your body type, breast measurements, medical history, your general surgeon, cancer size and location, and your desired breast size.
One of the most important factors in achieving an excellent result without complication for your breast reconstruction surgery is the general surgeon performing the mastectomy and preserving the skin. If you do not have a general surgeon already, we will help you find some of the best breast surgeons in the area.
You will have the opportunity to see before and after pictures as well as return for a 2nd appointment or visit to ask further questions. We hope this site provides information that can help guide your choices in breast reconstruction.
