Planning Your Surgery:
Consultations:It is essential that you understand the procedure involved. Dr.Sumita will go through all the details about the procedures necessary with you.
This includes your Blood tests and relevant Investigations including Photography
Timing of surgery: Surgery is considered after the normal breast is fully developed which could be after 18-20 years of age or before at periodic intervals if we contemplate to do fat grafting.
Surgical options and the procedure:
Depending upon the available tissue, size of the normal side, you may be considered for Breast implant alone or Tissue expansion followed by breast implant. In case your chest wall muscle is absent, as is seen in Poland syndrome you may require an additional procedure of flap cover (generally muscle from the back) to be rotated, under which an implant can be placed. An additional procedure such as breast lift (if drooping) may be required for the normal breast to attain match to the opposite side. If fat grafting is decided upon, the Doctor will explain the details of the procedure on consultation.
