Ask the Doctor- Can you repair a previously reconstructed breast?

This week, James E. Craigie, MD, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.

Question: I am trying to find a surgeon that can repair an already breast reconstructed breast that was done 5 years ago.

Answer:  Thank you for your question. The answer is yes, I frequently revise breast reconstruction that was performed elsewhere. Whether your previous surgeon is no longer available or if you would like a second opinion I would be glad to help.

My practice specializes in breast reconstruction of all types and we frequently see patients who have failed a previous attempt at breast reconstruction. If it would be convenient for you to come for a consultation let me know and someone from my office will contact you for more details. If not convenient for you to come for a consult we could talk over the phone. Let me know if I can help.
