Combining the benefits of traditional breast cancer surgery with the advantages of cosmetic plastic surgery, our Torrance oncoplastic reconstruction surgery removes the cancer and at the same time reconstructs the breasts for a natural, attractive appearance. Dr. Zampell in Beverly Hills is a highly experienced reconstructive surgeon who will tailor your procedure to your needs, aesthetic goals and unique anatomy.
What will the recovery entail?
Recovery times will vary based on the extent of the reconstruction performed. Bruising will abate within a few days and the majority of your swelling will dissipate within a few weeks. Scars fade over time, but Dr. Zampell is careful to conceal scars so that they are inconspicuous. Your total recovery time will last between four and six weeks from your Beverly Hills perforator flap surgery.
Who is a good candidate for oncoplastic reconstruction?
Typically, patients with smaller tumors or those with larger breasts who will not mind a breast reduction make good candidates for oncoplastic surgery. Dr. Zampell will perform a physical evaluation as a component of your consultation, during which she will create a roadmap for your surgery and explain your options in-depth so you are thoroughly informed and empowered.
