Breast Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction involves recreating the breast form following its removal due to cancer. The creation of a long-lasting, symmetrical, and beautiful breast helps restore confidence, femininity, and self-esteem in women following breast cancer treatment. These procedures involve the use of breast implants, your own tissue, or a combination of both. Dr. Yates is our female plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures.
