What is breast reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction is a procedure in which all or part of the breast(s) are rebuilt following their removal due to cancer or another serious condition. This is a highly customized procedure that may include one or more of the following techniques:
- Breast augmentation
- Fat grafting to the breast
- Skin grafts
- Permanent tattooing of the nipple/areola
During your consultation, Dr. English will examine your breasts and determine which technique (or combination of techniques) is best for you. He may also order X-rays or a mammogram to guide him in developing a surgical plan.
Am I a good candidate for breast reconstruction?
You may be a good candidate for breast reconstruction if you:
- Have had all or part of one breast removed and feel lopsided as a result.
- Are self-conscious about your flat chest and would like to regain your old figure.
- Have fully completed cancer treatment, and have been told by your primary care physician that your disease is in remission.
How much does breast reconstruction cost in Little Rock?
Each breast reconstruction procedure is unique because it is performed with YOU in mind. Since your needs will be different from other patients, it will not be possible to provide you with an exact cost until after you meet with Dr. English the first time. Once he has established a treatment plan, we can then go over the cost and discuss which method of payment might be right for you. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to financing through CareCredit® or MedLoanFinance.com.
Breast reconstruction procedures are generally considered elective, and are therefore not covered under most health insurance plans. As such, our office does not accept any form of health coverage.
