read more › The ECAPS Center for Breast Reconstruction has been a privilege and a focal point for us since its inception. Our specialization in breast reconstruction has given us a distinctive mark of excellence among plastic and reconstructive surgeons, helping women to become whole again and restore their confidence. Come October, it seems like the world is draped in a veil of bubble gum pink, a hue that signals the arrival of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Treatment was successful in putting the cancer in remission.

read more › The possibilities and techniques for breast reconstruction following a mastectomy have expanded tremendously and the DIEP flap procedure (Deep Inferior Epigastric artery Perforator Flap) is one of the most sophisticated breast reconstruction procedures performed today. Due to its complexity, however, few surgical teams currently perform them. The surgeons at East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery's Center for Breast Reconstruction are proud to offer this remarkable reconstructive surgery to our patients.

read more › Sometimes the decisions associated with breast reconstruction can seem daunting, if not overwhelming. Not only do you need to decide on the shape and size of your reconstructed breast tissue, but you also need to choose the origin of that implant-saline, silicone, donor tissue and so on. Sometimes it's helpful to keep in mind that the reason so many options exist is to honor your individual journey. These options exist to help women achieve optimal results no matter their starting point. One of these particular options is a procedure known as an Inferior Gluteal Artery Perforator (IGAP) Flap Procedure.

read more › The most commonly used breast reconstruction options don't work equally well for all women simply because every woman comes into the reconstruction process having had unique experiences-though that does not discount their common trials and common goals. In most cases, reconstructive surgeons recommend using donor tissues from the abdomen to reconstruct the breast, but that's not an option for every woman. In some cases where the abdomen lacks the necessary fat and muscle tissue-or in some cases where the first reconstruction procedure was unsuccessful-a Latissimus Dorsi (LD) Flap procedure may be the best bet.

He now incorporates his lifelong passion of art with the application of nipple and areola tattoos, which provides a unique service to breast cancer survivors who are in search of closure. His 3D nipple and areola tattooing techniques provide clients with the most realistic representations of lifelike nipples and areolas available. Myers' exposure to an infinite number of breast reconstruction recipients has provided him with an unmatched level of experience tattooing the vast differences in skin that each client's particular case presents.

read more › Nipple reconstruction is often intended for women who have lost one or both nipples to a mastectomy or lumpectomy, and may be performed at the time of breast reconstruction, or as a follow-up procedure. Nipple reconstruction has also been used to benefit recovering burn victims. This procedure can be a key component on the road to recovery, as it is to many of the New Jersey nipple reconstruction patients who elect for the procedure, because a breast can feel incomplete or artificial without a noticeable and natural-looking nipple.

read more › Oncoplastic reconstruction combined the principles of cosmetic surgery techniques employed during breast reductions and mastopexies (breast lifts), with breast surgical oncology. When a lumpectomy is required and a contour deformity is expected, the remaining tissue of the breast can be used to simultaneously camouflage the defect and sculpt the breast, to provide a more youthful appearance. The scars are equivalent to cosmetic reductions/cosmetic mastopexy. The opposite breast will also be modified to create symmetry.

read more › There are several means of reconstructing the breast after mastectomy or after other breast trauma, including birth defect. Some women opt for artificial implants composed of silicone or saline, but some women opt to use donor tissue from their own bodies because it can produce a more natural looking and feeling breast. The site of that donor tissue depends on the end result desired by the patient and the unique anatomy of that patient. For patients who do not have enough abdominal tissue for an effective DIEP flap, a technique called a Superior Gluteal Artery Perforator (SGAP) flap is often used instead.

read more › Restoring Sensation in the Breast After Mastectomy in the setting of Autologous Breast Reconstruction (DIEP Flap Reconstruction). After a mastectomy is performed and the breast tissue is removed, the nerves that supply feeling to the breast are also severed. This results in permanent loss of sensation and numbness of the breast skin that is left behind. Using a new technique of breast neurotization we can now restore sensation in the breast. Neurotization is repair of the nerve and is performed during breast reconstruction procedures.
