A breast cancer diagnosis and its accompanying treatment is often overwhelming, especially if it entails losing one or both breasts to a mastectomy. The physical changes involved can have a long lasting emotional effect and lead to a significant loss of confidence. This does not, however, need to be permanent. Breast reconstruction can be done at the time of mastectomy or can be delayed until after cancer treatment is completed. There are numerous surgical options available to recreate the breasts, including single stage direct to implant reconstruction after nipple sparing mastectomies. Dr. Lickstein was one of the first surgeons in Florida to perform the procedure. He is also the first surgeon in the area to use the aeorform tissue expander. He is often asked to speak on the topic to peers, patients, and community groups. Each individual patient’s individual unique circumstances and goals will determine which approach provides the greatest opportunity for success. Breast reconstruction is a highly personal decision, and Dr. Lickstein will help each patient consider their options and how to best approach their journey.

Implant vs. Tissue Flap

There are several procedures that can be used to reconstruct one or both breasts using your own tissue, fat grafting, implants, or a combination of techniques.
