At PRMA, We Often See Lumpectomy Patients Who Are Unhappy With Their Cosmetic Outcome After Breast Conservation And Are Exploring Reconstructive Options To Improve Their Overall Cosmetic Results.
Lumpectomy followed by radiation can leave the remaining breast tissue firm and more prone to scarring, especially in women with smaller breasts and male breast cancer patients. In these situations, preserving the remaining breast tissue can be very difficult with limited reconstructive options for a cosmetically acceptable result.
A completion mastectomy removes the remaining breast tissue. In patients interested in breast reconstruction, the completion mastectomy is performed in a way that preserves as much of the overlying breast skin as possible, and can be combined with a variety of breast reconstruction techniques. For patients with a history of chest or breast radiation, autologous reconstruction using the patients own tissue is strongly recommended due to the increased risks associated with implant-based reconstruction in radiated patients.

Oh what I would give to have found PRMA before my mastectomy, prosthesis, implants and 6 plus years of not being satisfied. I thank God every day for bringing PRMA into my life and I thank them for doing what they do so well. My wish is that PRMA reaches as many women possible early on so they too can benefit from the amazing work that they do for breast cancer patients. I promote PRMA every chance I have!
I would like to say is throughout the whole procedure from the first procedure, to the second procedure, to my final procedures I never felt less than a woman. I like my breast, and so the entire time I never felt like I was not a woman at any point. So definitely I would recommend PRMA to anyone and everyone.
I’m super excited and love the results and feel amazing. I want to let anyone listening to this know that I had the worst anxiety before my surgery thinking of everything you can imagine. I can say that this was 100% the right choice for me I love the way that I look. The process was much easier than what I expected.
I knew I wanted to have a mastectomy, but I didn’t know about breast reconstruction. Dr. Ledoux gave me ALL the options I had, and I really appreciated that!
