More about Breast
During Your Consultation
During your breast reconstruction consultation, Dr. Davis will assess the shape, volume, and symmetry of both breasts and take measurements. He will want to hear your cancer survival story and discuss your goals and ideal result. You can also share and specific concerns and have all of your questions answered. It is always helpful for Dr. Davis to know what surgery you have previously had, current implant size and type, and status of your cancer treatment.
The vast majority of breast reconstructive surgery that Dr. Davis performs is secondary operations after women have previously undergone their initial reconstruction through their hospital or insurance provider. The techniques vary for each patient but can include breast reductions and lifts, implants exchanges and revisions, and fat grafting. Based on your surgical and treatment history, Dr. Davis will work with you to get the result that you want.
After surgery you will be placed in a supportive bra and will return to the office the next day for us to check on you. We will continue to check on you as you recover, and are of course here and available any day if you have any questions or concerns. If fat grafting was performed, you will have a compression garment on the areas that liposuction was performed. You’ll feel sore for a few days, but will be feel good within a week. Change in nipple sensitivity after surgery is common and often returns to normal in a few months. After the first week, you can gradually increase your activity level, and strenuous exercise can resume at 6 weeks.
