Breast Reconstruction

Sometimes, treating breast cancer involves removing all or part of one or both breasts. While this may be a necessary and life-saving measure, it is nevertheless traumatic. Breast reconstruction at the Provo, Utah practice of Dr. Kevin Rose can help a woman to regain a sense of normalcy after mastectomy or lumpectomy by allowing her to move forward without an obvious reminder of her illness.

Why Breast Reconstruction?

Women who lose their own breast(s) to cancer treatment choose breast reconstruction for a variety of very personal reasons including:

  • To have symmetrical, natural looking breasts
  • To avoid the need for prosthetics
  • To feel “whole” after cancer treatment

Dr. Rose can form a new breast for a patient either at the time of mastectomy (immediate reconstruction), or at some point after (delayed reconstruction). The new breast can be formed using an implant during breast augmentation in Salt Lake City, or in some cases, a flap of the patient’s own tissue.

About the Procedure

There are numerous options for breast reconstruction for Salt Lake City, Orem and Provo patients who choose Dr. Rose. Depending on whether you choose reconstruction with an implant, or a flap procedure, the surgery can take from 2 to 5 hours. This procedure requires general anesthesia, and may be performed on either an outpatient or an inpatient basis, depending on the extent of the surgery.

Patients will experience discomfort, bruising, and swelling following surgery, and may need to take 1 to 2 weeks or more off of work. The length of recovery depends on the type and extent of the reconstruction, and whether you choose a flap procedure or breast augmentation near Salt Lake City. Dr. Rose will thoroughly discuss your options with you, and will work with you to determine the best approach to creating your new breast(s).

Testimonials

I have been meaning to send you an email and let you know how happy I am with my results and experience with you. I went to 5 different doctors and chose you. Knowing different results with people that I know, I am pretty sure that those other doctors would have done a fine job. After going to your office and the experience that I had with you and your staff, I knew that you were the doctor for me. You are the most professional doctor that I saw. It was so much more comfortable for me to go over all of the information about breast augmentation with you at your desk and me fully dressed. I didn't have that experience with any of the other doctors. You have a way of making people feel at ease as much as possible. It was nice to have a doctor tell me sizes to consider that would be proportionate to my body frame.

Your staff is so wonderful. Each person in your office is so pleasant to deal with. I don't think that you could have better staff and it helped make my final decision to go to you to have my procedure done.

You did an amazing job!! This is confirmed to me each time one of my friends or family members tells me how natural and great I look. I have decided, if you have something about yourself that bothers you and can be fixed, fix it! The confidence boost that this breast augmentation has given me is awesome. My husband said Dang, I have never heard you talk about any part of yourself like this before. I replied with, Have you ever seen any part of me look so great? We both said that you must have been very gentle during surgery, because I had one tiny little bruise and I felt great quickly after.

I am very happy with my results and I would recommend you to anyone. I have found myself trying to think of people that I could tell to go to you and I realized it probably wouldn't be very nice to tell people that they need to improve their looks if they hadn't even thought of it before. Two of my friends have come to you already and feel the same as I do. We need more surgeons out there like you.

Sincerely,K
