What is Oncoplastic Breast Reconstruction?

Oncoplastic reconstruction, which follows lumpectomy, encompasses a broad spectrum of techniques, including tissue rearrangement, breast lift, and breast reduction, which are meticulously tailored to restore and enhance symmetry. The procedure includes translocating the nipple-areolar complex to ensure the complex is centered at the most projecting part of the breast. Often, corresponding procedures on the opposite breast are recommended to achieve balance. To learn more, schedule a consultation at Stalder Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA.

What Are the Benefits of Oncoplastic Breast Reconstruction?

Facing breast cancer can be daunting, but thanks to the latest surgical techniques, you don't have to feel like you've lost a part of yourself. Oncoplastic breast reconstruction at Stalder Plastic Surgery offers several advantages that help patients regain their sense of normalcy and self-esteem:

  • Restores comfort and confidence after tumor removal
  • Ensures breasts look symmetrical
  • Combines treatments into one procedure for a faster recovery process
  • Preserves as much of the existing tissue as possible for the most natural look and feel

How Does Oncoplastic Breast Reconstruction Work?

Oncoplastic reconstruction encompasses a lumpectomy, during which the tumor, an adjacent amount of surrounding tissue, and possibly nearby lymph nodes are removed. The aim is to eliminate cancerous cells from the breast completely. The remaining breast tissue undergoes a process of reshaping aimed at reconstituting the appearance of the breast, minimizing any irregularities from the lumpectomy. During reconstruction, a breast reduction or lift on the opposite side ensures both breasts look even and natural, creating a more attractive breast shape.

Restoring Confidence

Oncoplastic reconstruction blends the advantages of traditional breast cancer surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery, providing a well-rounded solution.

About Us
How much does oncoplastic breast reconstruction surgery cost?

Oncoplastic breast reconstruction surgery can be complicated, so to get great results, you should concentrate on finding a plastic surgeon who has years of experience and trainings like Dr. Stalder rather than finding the lowest price. At your initial consultation, Dr. Stalder will listen to your concerns and cosmetic goals before crafting your unique surgical plan. After this, we can talk to you about costs, options for payment, and low-interest medical financing.

Does insurance cover my breast reconstruction surgery?

The WHCRA (Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act) of 1998 requires health insurance plans that cover breast cancer surgery (mastectomy) to cover reconstruction surgery as well. If you have health insurance, someone from Stalder Plastic Surgery will help you understand your policy and coverage. We will also help you submit any needed information to your insurance.

What about nipple reconstruction?

Reconstruction of the nipple-areola complex is typically done with cosmetic tattooing. If you are interested in this, you should ask Dr. Stalder during your consultation. They will go over your options, so you can decide if you'd like 3D tattooing of the nipple and areola to be a part of your treatment plan.

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.

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!
