We Stand Out
What Sets PRMA Apart From The Competition

Advanced Breast Reconstruction

PRMA is one of the leading breast reconstruction practices in the World. We are very experienced with all types of reconstructive breast surgery, but do have a strong focus on state-of-the-art microsurgical procedures using the patient’s own tissue. This is because these procedures generally provide superior and much more “natural” results long-term than implants. Flap procedures are also strongly recommended instead of implants if the patient has had or will be having radiation.

Shared Decision Making

Shared decision making is the most important aspect of patient centered health care! Patients and their physicians work together to make the best decisions for individualized care. It is our belief at PRMA that each patient is unique, and as such, no two breast reconstruction journeys will be alik

Abdominal Motor Nerve Preservation

There is more to a DIEP flap than just preserving the abdominal muscle. We also take extra care to save the abdominal motor nerves to preserve function!

Restore Feeling After Mastectomy with TruSense

Most women facing mastectomy and breast reconstruction want to know what kind of feeling their new breast(s) will have. Unfortunately mastectomy leaves many women with very little feeling long term (if any), regardless of whether they have breast reconstruction or not. There is some good news though…. Most women undergoing DIEP or SIEA flap breast reconstruction are also candidates for reconstruction of the sensory nerves in the breasts that provide feeling. The feeling in the new breast won’t be as good as what Mother Nature provided but it’s certainly a lot better than the alternative. A nice bonus at the very least.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery

Patient comfort is one of our top priorities at PRMA Plastic Surgery! Thanks to PRMA’s new Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) protocol, our patients experience less pain and are able to leave the hospital sooner after breast reconstruction surgery.

Lymphedema Surgery

There are non-surgical and surgical treatment options for lymphedema.At PRMA we offer the complete spectrum of upper extremity lymphedema treatment. Microsurgery is part of our daily practice and we are proud to offer our patients state-of-the-art reconstructive procedures including lymphatic-to-vascular anastomosis (“LVA” hook-up) and vascularized lymph node transfer.

Hidden Scar Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction

A nipple sparing mastectomy can be performed as a Hidden Scar Mastectomy. This means the mastectomy incision is made in the natural crease beneath the breast, called the inframammary fold. By placing the scars off the breast and in the crease, patients avoid the obvious visible reminders of their surgery.

Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy

Nipple-sparing mastectomy is the latest evolution in mastectomy technique. The procedure preserves the entire skin envelope and nipple areola. Only the underlying breast tissue is removed. When combined with immediate breast reconstruction, nipple-sparing mastectomy provides superior cosmetic results without compromising cancer treatment. At PRMA, we routinely offer nipple-sparing mastectomy to appropriate candidates.
