Breast Reconstruction

Individualized & State-of-the-Art 

Penn Medicine Virtua provides innovative, post-mastectomy breast reconstruction through a variety of surgical options designed to meet your unique needs. Our approach to reconstructive surgery is as individualized as your treatment plan. Our surgeons are board-certified and nationally recognized cancer reconstruction physicians. While breast reconstruction is considered an elective procedure, it is not solely cosmetic, and insurance will pay for breast reconstruction when a mastectomy is indicated.

All Types of Breast Reconstruction Available

You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which type of breast reconstruction best fits you. These options include:

  • Implant reconstruction (tissue expander)
  • Autologus tissue reconstruction (several types of free flap reconstruction: TRAM, DIEP, SIEA, S-GAP, I-GAP, and TUG/TMG)
  • Autologous tissue with implant reconstruction

Restoring Appearance

Areola color restoration provides a natural 3-D appearance for women who have undergone breast reconstruction. If you have chosen not to have nipple reconstruction, a tattoo can provide the illusion of a natural nipple. For many breast cancer survivors, this option helps provide emotional and physical recovery after breast cancer. Coordination of color and size of areola is determined in consultation with a micro-pigmentation specialist.

Our Team

Services are provided by board-certified and fellowship-trained radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation therapists, oncology nurses, and social workers. Each patient’s individualized treatment plan is reviewed during a weekly session attended by radiation oncology experts from Penn Medicine and Virtua.
