Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey Breast Reconstruction
Learn about breast reconstruction surgery, including after a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or radiation, recovery time, and before and after photos.
The development of new technologies in reconstructive surgery has encouraged the majority of women who undergo mastectomy to choose breast reconstruction. The latest surgical techniques can create breasts that look and feel very much like the natural breast. Our doctors are highly experienced in performing breast reconstruction with both implants as well as your own tissue. During your consultation at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, the doctor will discuss your concerns and determine the best course of action for your specific needs. Knowing the reconstructive options that are available with mastectomy gives our patients a reassuring positive outlook for the future.

The recovery process from breast reconstruction is both a physical and emotional journey. The medical recovery time varies depending on the technique used. Flap reconstruction, which involves using your own tissue to reconstruct the breast, can take a bit longer to recover from than implants, because it requires surgery in two different areas of the body. Patients combining breast reconstruction with mastectomy surgery will have a somewhat more intense recovery period, but often are relieved that the number of separate procedures can be reduced. Typically there will be some discomfort immediately following the surgery, which is relieved with pain medication. Bruising and swelling reduces dramatically within the first 2 weeks of the reconstruction. Swelling will continue to decrease slowly over about three months.
