Breast Implant Size

For many women, deciding what breast size they want can be the most difficult part about choosing breast augmentation. Generally, the larger you want your cup size to be, the larger the breast implant Dr. Kadi will consider using. Dr. Kadi will evaluate your existing breast tissue to determine if you have enough tissue to accommodate the desired size of breast implant.

Breast Implant SizesIf you desire a breast implant that is too large for your tissue, the implant's edges may be visible through your skin after your operation or the implant may be more easily felt. By choosing a breast implant that is too large for your tissue, you may increase the risk of having surgical complications. Also, breast implants that are excessive in size may increase the effects of gravity on your body, which may cause your breasts to prematurely droop or sag.

Insurance Coverage

 

If You Have Insurance:

In most cases Federal law requires that insurance companies cover the cost of reconstructive breast surgery for women who've undergone a mastectomy. This includes coverage for procedures that restore and achieve symmetry on the opposite side of the breast. For more information, see http://www.cancercare.org/.

If You Do Not Have Insurance

If you are not covered by an insurance plan, there are several options you can pursue to help you cover the cost of reconstructive surgery.

If you live near a university that has a medical center, investigate resident programs – they sometimes take patients at more reasonable rates and receive state aid to treat patients in need.

The Cancer Care Organization provides a free Helping Hand Resource Guide. See http://www.cancercare.org/ for more information.

 

About Mastectomy

A mastectomy is the removal of breast tissue due to the presence of a cancerous or precancerous growth. The amount of tissue removed during a mastectomy procedure varies. There are several types of mastectomies that can be performed. The type that is best for you depends on many factors, including the size and stage of the cancer, your particular anatomy and your preferences.

The most common mastectomy procedures are: the modified radical mastectomy, which entails removing the breast, its tissues, the nipple-areola and the lymph nodes found in the armpit. This procedure leaves the pectoralis major, the large muscle located on the chest wall, intact. The simple mastectomy involves the removal of only the breast tissue and sometimes the lymph nodes.

A lumpectomy is the most conservative surgical procedure. It calls for the removal of only the tumor itself and the surrounding margins, preserving the majority of the breast and its tissues.

 

Physician Roles: Who's involved with your treatment

During the course of your treatment for breast cancer, there will be several different physicians working together to plan your mastectomy and reconstruction procedure to give you the best possible result. They are:

  • General Surgeon - Performs the biopsy of the breast tumor and mastectomy, or lumpectomy.
  • Pathologist - Studies the tumor to determine the degree of malignancy
  • Medical Oncologist - Administers anticancer drugs or chemotherapy
  • Radiation Oncologist - Administers radiation therapy
  • Plastic Surgeon - Performs breast reconstruction
