What is Hybrid Breast Reconstruction?

Hybrid reconstruction is a transformative approach post-mastectomy. Dr. Mark Stalder expertly combines implant surgery and autologous flap techniques, ensuring the most natural and appealing outcome. This procedure can be performed immediately after mastectomy or through a two-part process, incorporating implants later. Schedule a consultation at Stalder Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA to learn if this method best suits you.

How Is Hybrid Breast Reconstruction Performed?

Hybrid reconstruction is usually started at the time of a mastectomy. A silicone or saline breast implant is placed above the muscle layer and then enveloped with a layer of your own body fat taken from a donor region such as the abdomen, thigh, or buttock. The fusion of living tissue with an implant gives the breast enhanced warmth and a more natural feel than a breast recreated solely through implant-based reconstruction.

Naturally Beautiful

Hybrid Reconstruction is a revolutionary approach that seamlessly integrates the advantages of autologous tissue and implant-based techniques. This groundbreaking fusion results in outcomes that are not only visually appealing but also remarkably natural. To explore the world of Hybrid Reconstruction and our comprehensive range of reconstructive procedures, we encourage you to contact Stalder Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA for a consultation.

About Us
How much does hybrid breast reconstruction surgery cost?

Hybrid breast reconstruction surgery can be complicated, so to get the best results, you should concentrate on finding a plastic surgeon who has years of training like Dr. Stalder instead of finding the cheapest price. At your consultation, Dr. Stalder will listen to your needs and goals before developing your unique surgical plan. After this, we will talk to you about costs, payment methods, and where to find low-interest medical financing.

Does insurance cover hybrid reconstruction surgery?

The WHCRA (Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act) of 1998 requires health insurance policies that cover mastectomies to also cover breast reconstruction surgery. If you have insurance, someone from Stalder Plastic Surgery will help explain your coverage. We will also help you submit needed information and paperwork to your insurance carrier.

Should I have hybrid reconstruction with my mastectomy or wait?

The timing of your hybri breast reconstruction is based on several things. Some patients decide to get their breast(s) reconstructed at the same time as their mastectomy, while other patients prefer to defer reconstruction surgery. Dr. Stalder recommends you make an appointment for a consultation following a diagnosis of breast cancer so you can begin considering your choices and when you want to have reconstruction surgery. If you decide to have reconstruction at the same time as your breast cancer treatment, Dr. Stalder can collaborate with your oncology team to plan your surgery.

From the day I met Dr Stalder he always asked me what I wanted rather than force anything on me. I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
