Patients undergoing mastectomy must understand they may lose all feeling to the chest area, regardless of whether they choose to have breast reconstruction or not. Most patients undergoing breast reconstruction will also candidates for nerve reconstruction (“ TruSense℠ or Resensation®”) at the time of their reconstruction. This repairs the nerves cut by the mastectomy and significantly improves return of feeling to the reconstructed breast.
PRMA is in-network with most major US insurance plans and does NOT balance bill.
Shared decision-making (SDM) is the most important aspect of patient-centered health care. Shared decision-making occurs when the health care professional and patient work together to make a treatment decision that is best for the patient. The best decision takes into account evidence-based information about treatment options, the physician’s knowledge and experience, and equally, the patient’s preferences and values. Multiple studies show this collaborative approach improves patient outcomes and satisfaction. At PRMA, we believe each patient is unique, and as such, no two breast reconstruction journeys will be alike. To empower our patients with the information they need we recommend patients download the Breast Advocate app–the world’s first shared decision-making app for breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction.
PRMA is One of the Leading Breast Reconstruction Centers in the World
We have performed over 12,000 breast reconstruction procedures, including over 10,000 microsurgical flap procedures, making PRMA one of the leading breast reconstruction centers in the World.
Women have several breast reconstruction options to consider following breast cancer surgery. After a mastectomy, options range from implants to “flap” techniques which use the patient’s own tissue to recreate a “natural”, warm, soft breast. Breast reconstruction can also be performed at the same time as a lumpectomy to maximize the cosmetic results and maintain breast symmetry.
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 lyphatic-to-vascular anastomosis (“LVA” hook-up) and vascularized lymph node transfer.
Whether you’re interested in breast augmentation, breast reduction, liposuction or any other body cosmetic surgery procedure, our plastic surgeons will provide you with the best results possible.
PRMA Plastic Surgery Patient Stories
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!
