Increasingly patients are being encouraged to have a conversation with a plastic reconstructive surgeon concerning breast reconstruction options prior to having of mastectomy. According to recent article a CBS affiliate KVAL reported that some experts believe that patients should consult a plastic surgeon before the initial operation. The importance of a pre-mastectomy consultation is rooted in the fact that it can provide options for plastic surgeons to reshape the breast as closely as possible to its original shape throughout the entire reconstruction process. The ability to preserve the existing skin of the breast so that the plastic surgeon can utilize it directly after the mastectomy during reconstruction will almost always yield the best cosmetic results. Also, by having a consultation prior to the mastectomy it may lead to an increase in postmastectomy reconstructions. This is an area medical experts agree needs to be addressed since only about 20% of mastectomies are reconstructed. Multiple studies proved that having breast reconstruction positively affects body image, as well as self-esteem for women who must undergo a mastectomy. Dr. Seify explains to patients who consult with him prior to having a mastectomy that it is his intention to work with the entire team of medical professionals treating the patient. Ultimately the decision to have breast reconstruction surgery is solely decision of the patient. Dr. Seify will help the patient understand the pros and cons of breast reconstruction as well as cover in detail the different types of reconstruction procedures. Patients who are considering breast reconstruction following mastectomy are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation.
