Breast Reconstruction

Women who need breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy or breast conservation surgery are in exceptional hands with Elevare MD’s Board Certified, fellowship-trained Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Michael DeWolfe. Elevare MD is proud to offer comprehensive breast reconstruction services to help restore the look and quality of life of women.

While reconstruction may be performed post treatment, Dr. DeWolfe also has expertise in oncoplastic surgery, which is reconstruction immediately following lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction at the time of breast conservation breast cancer surgery – prior to radiation therapy – is a major advancement in the treatment of breast cancer and normalizing the shape of the breast after lumpectomy. Using standard techniques in breast lift and breast reduction surgery during closure of the lumpectomy surgical site is a powerful way to avoid lumpectomy-related deformities following radiation.

Elevare MD offers virtually every type of breast reconstructive technique approved for use in the United States, including newer techniques that minimize scarring. Women often chose to undergo breast reconstruction in order to:

  • regain their natural contours and female shape
  • restore shape prior to cancer surgery or eliminate the need for a breast prosthesis
  • achieve a natural balance in their chest
  • restore self-confidence, or feel whole again

The Elevare MD Experience

Elevare MD understands that women undergoing breast reconstruction are also having to address other serious, complex medical issues, such as cancer. Dr. Michael DeWolfe, a Board Certified, fellowship-trained Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, and the entire Elevare MD team look forward to playing a critical role in helping you reclaim your breast appearance.

Dr. DeWolfe has helped countless women on their journey to recovery. He will discuss all your options for reconstruction during your initial consultation and listen to you to come up with the plan that’s right for you. Reconstructive techniques we offer include (but are not limited to):

  • Microvascular breast reconstruction (DIEP, SIEA, TUG, SGAP, IGAP)
  • Implants
  • Implant-based breast reconstruction with fat grafting for shape and augmentation
  • Nipple tattoo and reconstruction

The entire Elevare MD team will make sure you are prepared for your procedure and are dedicated to making your recovery as easy as possible.

Of course, we will always be here to answer any questions or concerns.
