Dr. Pickart offers breast reconstruction surgery to the residents of Ventura, Camarillo, and the surrounding areas of California.
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer or have just undergone a mastectomy, you are probably considering breast reconstruction. Dr. Pickart specializes in breast reconstruction for patients who have undergone surgery on their breasts.
How is breast reconstruction performed in Ventura?
Dr. Pickart can help you decide what is the most attractive size and shape of the new breast. There are many types of reconstructive options depending on your individual situation and the expectations you have for your breasts. The most common techniques involve the insertions of implants (saline filled or silicone filled) or the transfer of your own tissue from your tummy or back.
During your consultation Dr. Pickart will explain breast reconstruction options thoroughly. He realizes that each patient is unique; our favorite part of breast reconstruction surgery is customizing the experience for each patient. Dr. Pickart will listen to your needs and help you achieve the results you expect.
What can I expect after breast reconstruction surgery in Ventura?
After breast reconstruction surgery, many patients feel soreness in the chest area for approximately one week, which can be helped with an oral pain medication. Depending upon the type of reconstruction, many patients return to work after about one or two weeks and can return to normal exercise routines after one or two months. It is important for our patients to go to follow-up appointments for proper recovery.
How much does breast reconstruction surgery cost in Ventura?
Usually, the treatments for reconstructive breast surgery are covered by your insurance. Pickart Plastic Surgery currently works with most insurance carriers to ensure that patients can receive high quality treatment.
