Breast Reconstruction

Designed for women following a single or double mastectomy or women who suffer from a congenital of developmental abnormality, breast reconstruction is designed to restore a more natural and symmetrical breast appearance. While a reconstructed breast will never look and feel exactly like natural breasts, Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Malamet uses a number of advanced techniques to create a new breast and nipple that will resemble the woman’s natural beauty.

A full examination will be necessary to determine the best course of action to achieve the very best results. Since mastectomy or radiation therapy can pose a number of additional concerns including insufficient tissue on the chest wall to cover and support a breast implant, additional measures may be necessary to achieve the desired results. In these cases, a flap technique may be used to build up tissue surrounding the breast, and will help to support the new breast implant(s). Dr. Malamet will conduct a full examination to help determine the best plan to achieve the very best, most natural-looking and symmetrical results.

The Breast Reconstruction Procedure

Breast reconstruction is a highly individualized procedure that involves a number of advanced procedures and techniques designed to create a natural-looking breast contour. Depending on the amount of correction necessary, Dr. Malamet will help to determine which advanced procedures and techniques will achieve the desired results.

Tissue Expansion and Flap Techniques

Dr. Malamet was beyond helpful and caring with me as his patient. The surgery for me was so overwhelming and nerve-racking but he made sure to comfort me through it all. I went to several other doctors before Dr.Malamet and none of them compared to him.
