Planning Your Breast Reconstruction Procedure
To plan treatment, Dr. Jacobson will examine your breasts and discuss your goals for surgery. Some patients choose to undergo reconstruction using breast implants, while others prefer to use their own natural tissue. Each type offers its own unique advantages. We can identify the type of reconstruction that is best for you based on your unique needs and characteristics.
Breast Reconstruction with Implants
When undergoing breast reconstruction with implants, patients have the benefit of being able to customize the look and size of their new breasts. Before undergoing reconstructive surgery, many patients first require the use of a tissue expander in order to create sufficient space for the implants. Over the course of several weeks, the expander is slowly inflated. Once sufficient space has been created, the expander is removed and replaced with a breast implant.
Expert Surgical Skill for Beautiful Results
Dr. Jacobson completed his plastic surgery residency at Georgetown University Hospital, which has one of the most respected breast reconstruction centers in the United States. He excelled under the guidance of world-renowned surgeons Dr. Scott Spear and Dr. Maurice Nahabedian. Dr. Jacobson approaches every surgery with a strict attention to detail in order to ensure the best outcomes for his patients.
