BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY WITH DR ROMANELLI IN HUNTINGTON, NEW YORK
This woman was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent bilateral mastectomies a number of years ago. At the time she came to see Dr. Romanelli , we knew that she would have much of the breast skin removed. Dr. Romanelli placed tissue expanders (sterile surgical balloons) at the time of her mastectomy. They were filled in the office over several months, "regrowing" the skin she lost to her breast cancer surgery. The left-sided "before" pictures show her appearance after the tissue expanders were fully inflated. Shortly thereafter she had her second surgical procedure, which was done as an outpatient: removal of the tissue expanders, placement of silicone breast implants, and nipple areola reconstruction. Later, in the office, we tattooed the reconstructed nipples. Her after photos show excellent symmetry, and she can comfortably wear any style clothes.. We are thrilled this patient had such an incredible outcome!
