About Breast Reconstruction
Cosmetic Breast Reconstruction is also common following traumatic accidents or to fix birth defects. We specialize in multiple breast reconstruction surgery techniques to help you design a personalized treatment plan to restore your body and confidence. Breast reconstruction surgery may include creating a tissue flap, a tissue expander, and/or breast implants to restore the shape of the breasts.
If you have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer with a treatment plan that includes a mastectomy or have had a mastectomy in the past, we would like to offer you a private consultation with one of our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa to discuss your options.

We will walk with you through the process, and make your restoration after a mastectomy a healing journey.
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017

Breast reconstruction surgery is common to restore one or both breasts after:
- A mastectomy or lumpectomy
- A traumatic injury that damaged the breast tissue
- Congenital/birth defects such as tubular or unsymmetrical breasts
- Extreme weight loss
Breast reconstruction is also common following traumatic accidents or to fix birth defects. We specialize in multiple breast reconstruction surgery techniques to help you design a personalized treatment plan to restore your body and confidence.
What to Expect
There are 3 common breast reconstruction techniques:
- Transferring skin, muscle, and fat tissue from other areas to the breast
- Using a tissue expander to create space and then placing an implant
- A combination of implant and natural tissue enhancements
You may also need nipple reconstruction, breast augmentation, a breast lift, breast reduction, or a combination of these surgeries to enhance symmetry to provide the best aesthetic results. If only one breast is being reconstructed, the surgeon will try to match the reconstructed breast to your natural breast.
To create a tissue flap, the surgeon will remove a section of skin, fat, and muscle from one area of the body to move it to the breast. Tissue may be taken from the abdomen, upper back, or buttocks. Surgeons may also use a tissue expander to gradually enlarge and open space for an implant. When the skin has been stretched to the needed size, the expander will be removed and replaced with either a silicone or saline implant.
The Women's Health and Cancer Act (WHCA) was signed into federal law in 1998 and requires that health insurance companies cover breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer. For more information on this law and breast cancer, please visit www.cancer.org.
