What Is Resensation Nerve Grafting?

While many patients may be concerned about the appearance of their breasts following mastectomy, a less-discussed issue is the loss of feeling in the breasts, which can make it difficult to regain a sense of normalcy. To help individuals move forward after mastectomy, Dr. Mark Stalder in New Orleans, LA is pleased to perform breast reconstruction with Resensation®, a revolutionary procedure that reconnects the cut nerves to restore sensation. If you're looking for solutions to regain your breasts' look and feeling after mastectomy, reach out to Stalder Plastic Surgery to learn more about Resensation.

How Does Resensation Nerve Grafting Work?

Resensation is performed during breast reconstruction surgery. During the procedure, Dr. Stalder uses allograft nerve tissue to connect the nerves that were cut when the breast was removed. Over time, the nerves heal and start to grow, potentially restoring sensation to the area. The process is gradual and often takes several months, and can continue for up to two years. While recovery can take time, patients who have Resensation performed with their breast reconstruction often report improved functionality, body image, and satisfaction as a result.

Restoring Connections, Renewing Sensations

Resensation takes breast reconstruction a step forward by giving patients a renewed sense of normalcy post-mastectomy. Dr. Stalder is an accomplished microsurgeon and one of the few plastic surgeons in New Orleans, LA to offer this innovative procedure.

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!
