What is post-surgery reconstruction?

Post-surgery reconstruction describes surgical services you may need after your initial surgery. Estetica Nova offers several types of post-surgery construction procedures, including:

Breast reconstruction surgery

Breast reconstruction surgery focuses on rebuilding one or both breasts and improving their appearance after surgery to treat cancer.

Nerve reconstruction surgery

Nerve reconstruction surgery is a procedure to preserve the function of damaged nerves following trauma surgery.

Why would I need post-surgery reconstruction?

You might be a candidate for post-surgery reconstruction if you undergo a mastectomy to remove one or both breasts as part of your treatment plan for breast cancer.

While the procedure is elective, you may want to have a breast reconstruction procedure if you wish to maintain the contours of your body following the removal of your breasts. Candidates for breast reconstruction should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations for surgery results.

Dr. Oswald may recommend nerve reconstruction surgery if you have nerve injuries that affect your motor function following surgery for traumatic injuries. Ideally, nerve reconstruction surgeries should be done the same day or soon after a nerve injury diagnosis to prevent the irreversible loss of your nerve function.

What happens during post-surgery reconstruction?

During breast reconstruction surgery, Dr. Oswald recreates your breast mound in your chest wall using fat and skin tissue she removes from your lower abdomen. She may also use synthetic implants to restore your breast size and shape.

After breast reconstruction, you need to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling, and Dr. Oswald provides guidance to help you care for your incisions properly. It can take several weeks for swelling to resolve before you can see the full results of your breast reconstruction surgery.

During nerve reconstruction surgery, Dr. Oswald makes an incision over the area of your damaged nerve. She uses advanced surgical techniques like nerve conduits and nerve allografts to repair the damaged nerve before closing the incision.

Dr. Oswald manages any pain you have following your nerve reconstruction procedure. She also continues to monitor your nerve function as you heal.
