Breast Reconstruction

Washington DC Breast reconstruction surgery

Our GW Plastic Surgery physicians specialize in reconstructive surgery following cancer treatment with an emphasis on immediate and delayed breast reconstruction after mastectomy. We work closely with the GW Comprehensive Breast Center to provide a team approach to patient care with comprehensive consultations to discuss reconstructive options.

Our providers perform state-of-the-art soft tissue (autologous) reconstruction including TRAM, DIEP, TUG, PAP and latissimus flaps using your own tissues, as well as prosthetic reconstruction using saline-filled or silicone gel-filled implants. We believe strongly that the choice of reconstruction should be individualized and that no one operation is right for every patient. Our team will follow you closely through all phases of your treatment and recovery.

Our services include:

  • Implant reconstruction
  • Soft tissue reconstruction (flaps)
