Ask the Doctor-Do you accept patients that are considering removal?

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

Question: I wanted to know if you accept patients that are considering implant removal and reconstruction (with no history of mastectomy). If so, I’d like an idea of costs involved. Thank you!

AnswerThank you for your question. Yes we do surgery to reconstruct and re shape the breasts after implants are removed. The cost is determined by what procedure is necessary to help restore the breast shape.

If your implants were put in for cosmetic reasons then the surgery to restore the breasts is usually cosmetic as well. If you would like to come for a consultation I could give you more specific details regarding the fees.

Alternatively if you can not come for a consult I could get more information from you about your situation. A call staff for more details may be needed. Just let me know if either option is good for you.
