As the battle against breast cancer rages on, more and more women are victorious in their fight against the disease. Though new treatments are still being tested, one of the most effective procedures in removing cancer is still a full mastectomy or removal of one or both breasts. For breast cancer survivors who have undergone a mastectomy, even when all traces of breast cancer are gone, the physical and emotional scars remain.
Breast Reconstruction in East Lansing
Fortunately, breast reconstruction procedures can help restore a woman’s breasts, helping her regain confidence and a renewed sense of self in the wake of her cancer treatments. Breast reconstruction can be performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Lee H. Colony, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Customizing Your Breast Reconstruction Procedure
The surgery can be performed either immediately following a mastectomy or later down the road. If you are considering breast reconstruction surgery, a consultation with Lansing’s surgeon Dr. Colony will give you the opportunity to explore all of your options for surgery, including the specific method of reconstruction itself.
Implants vs. Autologous Breast Reconstruction
One way to reconstruct the breast is by using a patient’s existing tissue to construct new breast mounds. Another method of reconstruction involves the use of either silicone or saline implants. Sometimes, in Lansing plastic surgery, both implants and existing tissue are used. Though silicone implants tend to look and feel more like real breasts, a number of patients do prefer implants that are filled with sterile saline solution. Together, you and Dr. Colony will go over the specifics of each type of implant so you can make an informed decision.
Dr. Colony did AMAZING work!!!! I could NOT be happier with my results. I am 6wks post op breast augmentation and I am completely 150% satisfied. I spent 2hrs asking questions in my consultation. He answered every single one of them. The procedure went perfectly and great CRNA and staffing. Great pre/post-op packet given before surgery. Am sooooo pleased with my results!! Couldn't be happier!! Would recommend to everyone, tell everyone about Dr. Colony!!
I am beyond thrilled with my choice of a plastic surgeon. Dr. Colony is not only incredibly smart and he's got the bedside manner going for him which is quite hard to find in surgeons. I have not only recommended Colony to many friends, but I've actually realized a couple of friends had gone to him before without me realizing.
Dr. Colony and his staff are amazing. I have called at least 7 times with questions for them (I am getting surgery in May) and they have been so patient, informative, and kind to me. The best part is that they take health and safety very seriously. They care about the patient and care about the work they do and it shows. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in plastic surgery.
