Corrective Reconstruction FAQs
How much does breast reconstruction surgery cost?
Breast reconstruction surgery can be complicated, so to get great results, you should focus on selecting a plastic surgeon who has years of training and experience like Dr. Stalder over the cheapest price. During your consultation, Dr. Stalder will listen to your needs and cosmetic goals before crafting your personal surgical plan.

Does insurance cover my surgery?

If you have insurance, someone from Stalder Plastic Surgery will help explain your coverage. We will also help you submit any needed information and paperwork to your insurance carrier.
Which technique should I choose?
There is no single reconstruction technique that works for every patient. The recommended technique for you will depend on your concerns, wants, and physique. In your consultation, Dr. Stalder can discuss your choices, including both implants and flaps, so you can understand the benefits and challenges before you decide. Whether you decide on a flap or implants for reconstruction, Dr. Stalder will do his best to give you natural-looking results.
Stalder Plastic Surgery Reviews
Dr. Stalder and his staff are awesome very professional and compassionate. Dr. Stalder, Abby & Jess treated me like family. I am very satisfied with my surgery & reconstruction Dr. Stalder is the best.Dr. Stalder explained everything in detail and what to expect regarding my double mastectomy & reconstruction. Dr. Stalder is the best.
I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.
Very caring doctor and staff. Extremely knowledgeable and helping breast reconstruction with several options. Just a wonderful wonderful doctor. You cannot go wrong with this doctor and his staff

The office is beautiful and Dr. Stalder is a gem! Truly caters to your every need! I cannot recommend him enough!
