NYC plastic surgeon discusses mastectomy reconstruction
When patients in NYC have been diagnosed with breast cancer, it can be a scary and emotional time –especially when a mastectomy is considered. Women often feel less “feminine” following the removal of their breast, which is when they may decide to visit a plastic surgeon to discuss the possibility of reconstruction. Mastectomy reconstruction is popular because it rebuilds the breast for a more feminine appearance.

During a consultation appointment with Dr. Edmund Kwan, patients will be evaluated to determine the best possible option for their specific needs.
