Breast Reconstruction in the NYC Tri-State area.Breast cancer survivors often suffer embarrassment following a mastectomy. In addition to cosmetic concerns, this can be especially traumatic emotionally, as it may almost feel like the cancer has stolen part of their femininity. According to studies, women who undergo reconstructive breast surgery following cancer treatment enjoy greater self-confidence, a better self-image, an improved sense of wellbeing, and a stronger feeling of femininity.
Dr. Kwan of New York City offers premier reconstructive surgical treatments, designed to help patients restore their health, appearance, and confidence. He and his exceptional team are dedicated to improving patients' quality of life, health, and wellbeing. Although the benefits of breast reconstruction are tremendous, it is important to have realistic expectations. The procedure will leave scars, and an unclothed reconstructed breast will not look exactly like a natural breast.
Reconstructive surgery is intended to construct a naturally shaped breast mound, restoring a healthy and attractive body shape. This allows the patient to wear what she wants, attend social events without feeling self-conscious, and never worry that people will notice she's had a mastectomy.
Best and Safe methods of Breast Augmentation - Dr. Edmund Kwan
Are Silicone Implants safe for breast augmentation?
The silicone is very safe as it does not cause any ordinary disease or cancer.
What is a Saline Breast Implant?
Saline implants are a breast implant that is filled with saltwater. It is very effective in giving patients what they want. However, the appearance of saline implants was reasonable but when you go to feel these implants, they feel much more fake than silicone implants.
Why do you recommend silicone implants?
Silicone implants were again approved by FDA about 10 years ago and for most of the patient’s Silicone Implants are the best material. The rupturing or complications from it can happen but they are fairly low, so it is a great implant to use.
How is the procedure done?
It is done through an incision around the breast, or around the nipple area, or at the bottom of the breast or in the armpit area.
There are advantages and disadvantages of each procedure. However, in many of the ethnic population, the scaring on the breast tend to be a little bit worst and these scars turn to hypopigmented and become darker or scars become thicker.
In the hands of a skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Edmund Kwan, you can find greater satisfaction with your shape and size.

There are two common types of reconstructive techniques used for cancer patients. One is implant-based reconstruction, which uses a breast implant to add volume and shape. The other option is flap-based reconstruction, which uses donor tissue from the patient to augment the breast. The choice of techniques will depend on factors such as the type of cancer, anatomical considerations, and your overall cancer treatment plan. We will explain which options are available to you, and help you choose the best solution for your health and happiness.
