Breast Reconstruction

Breast cancer affects approximately 12.5% of women living in the U.S. Many women who undergo treatment for breast cancer may need a mastectomy for treatment. This surgical procedure removes the breast tissue and sometimes the nipple and areola. Only the breast skin remains. As part of the recovery process, many women opt to undergo breast reconstruction to recreate the volume and shape they once had.

What is Breast Reconstruction?

Breast reconstruction surgery has undergone numerous advances in the last decade and there are many techniques to reconstruct the breast. This surgery helps to restore the breasts to a normal appearance and shape following treatment for breast cancer. Breast reconstruction surgery often involves a combination of procedures that are performed in stages. The type of reconstruction is either implant-based or flap reconstruction. By looking at a number of variables with a patient, Dr. Mohan will help the patient choose the best treatment for them to gain optimal results.

What to Expect During Breast Reconstruction?

In breast reconstruction, the plastic surgeon aims to recreate the breast mound, nipple, and areola. The surgical oncologist or breast surgeon performs the mastectomy or surgical treatment to remove the mass or tumor. Dr. Mohan performed his residency training at the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital and worked under many famous breast and plastic surgeons who taught him the art of breast reconstruction. He gained experience in tissue expander/breast implant-based reconstruction and autologous breast reconstruction using free flaps. Autologous breast reconstruction means using the patient’s own tissue to re-recreate the shape of the breast. Sometimes tissue neighboring the breast can be used but if the tissue is needed from the abdomen or thigh, then a free flap is required. A free flap involves transferring tissue from one region of the body to the breast and performing microsurgery to connect millimeter-sized vessels that will help provide blood flow to the free flap.

Dr. Mohan also performs nipple-areolar reconstruction, fat grafting, symmetry procedures, and revisions for breast reconstruction patients. He is well-versed with pre-pectoral breast reconstruction.

Testimonials

"Dr. Mohan is one of a kind. He does the little things that mean so much. After my surgery, he took the time to reach out to my husband to check on how I was doing and later reached out to myself. When I told him to never forget those little things, he said "I feel about my patients, the way I do about my children. I worry about them". Truly unique in the busy world we now live in. If you want a Physician "who sees you", Dr. Mohan is the one for you. And I almost forgot, he's a great surgeon."
