With major advances in surgical reconstruction, plastic and reconstructive surgeons have been able to restore and rebuild areas of the body and skin that have been lost or damaged due to cancer. This has been particularly apparent in the field of breast reconstruction. With a number of techniques that have been significantly improved over the years, doctors can reconstruct the breasts after mastectomy, lumpectomy, injury, or deformity with results that look natural. Breast reconstruction surgeons here at the Ohio State University Department of Plastic Surgery are some of the most skilled and experienced in the region. Our doctors are specialty-trained in every major breast reconstruction technique, and reconstruction of the breast has been one of the cornerstones of our department’s research program. We offer a team approach to your care, working with your oncologist and primary care physician to make sure you experience the best breast reconstruction results possible.
