Breast reconstruction is performed to restore the breast to near normal appearance, size and shape, typically following a mastectomy, when all or part of the breast is removed.
This surgery is often the first step in making a patient feel whole again. It is important for patients with breast cancer to be aware of the wide range of reconstruction and implant options available. Unfortunately, less than 50% of women are counseled regarding their reconstructive options before undergoing their mastectomy.
Working in collaboration with oncologists and surgeons, board certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Larson and his team strive to achieve the best possible results using the most innovative technology. You will be guided through each step of the process, from the initial appointment to recovery and beyond.
Dr. Jeffrey Larson practices at the Monona Clinic and UnityPoint Health - Meriter hospital in Madison.
Most private insurance companies reimburse a portion or the entire cost of breast reconstruction. As each insurance varies, check with your provider.
