Jacksonville Breast Reconstruction | Dr.Sternberg Gallery
This is a very complicated case of breast cancer. She had aggressive breast cancer on the right side which required treatment with radiation prior to breast surgery. This resulted in significant deformity and inflammation of the right breast as you can see. After the general surgeon removed both breasts, I reconstructed the patient by using her own tummy tissue on the right and an implant on the left. She later had reconstruction of the nipple. She was pleased with the outcome, but with recent improvements in breast implants since then, I would likely use a tear drop shaped implant on her left side if doing the same surgery today.The final reconstruction resulted in good symmetry and a soft breast. She later had nipple reconstruction and additional fat grafting to the left breast. She is very pleased with the overall results.
