All Things Charleston: Breast Reconstruction Recovery Hot Spots


Women choose breast reconstruction to empower themselves and gain a new lease on life. At The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction, we applaud all our patients for their courage, strength, and positive attitudes…

And for being a constant source of inspiration to our team.

Our staff is here to help these women in every way possible, including post-mastectomy care and reconstruction recovery. We don’t simply offer suggestions on how to recover after a procedure—we also help you celebrate your new life!

For that reason, we’ve compiled a list of the most relaxing, rejuvenating, and fun places in Charleston, South Carolina—destinations that allow you to unwind, think, and get ready to tackle the world after surgery.

The Inn at Middleton Place

After your procedure, you can gain clarity and greater appreciation of life at the Inn at Middleton Place. This beautiful resort sits on the bluffs of the Ashley River, a secluded location surrounded by towering pines and oaks.

The location is one big plus, and the resort itself is also a sight to behold. The winner of the American Institute of Architects highest award, The Inn features 55 rooms that come with 150-gallon tubs, floor-to-ceiling windows, and gorgeous gift baskets that will be waiting for you.

Wild Dunes Spa Services and Wellness

As it accurately states on their website, “Sand & Sea Salon with Spa Services at Wild Dunes Resort can have you looking great and feeling even better.” The feeling even better part is what we’re concerned with the most.

From manicures and pedicures to massages, facials, and body scrubs—any service in this relaxed island ambiance will help in your breast reconstruction recovery.

Speaking of massages, here are a few of our favorites:

The Honey Magnolia Massage – This is a light-to-medium pressure massage that smells as good as it feels with a combination of southern magnolia flowers and honey.

Warm Seashell Massage – For this massage, smooth shells are warmed up and used to aid in relaxing your muscles and releasing all your stress.

Rainbow Row Massage – This is Swedish massage that uses a hydrating combination of honey and “Rainbow Road” shea butter. (If you’ve never used this moisturizer, rest assured that it is divine.)
