Dr. Cooperman proudly offers several breast reconstruction procedures in Livingston, NJ. Breast reconstruction procedures, including implant reconstruction, are procedures typically performed on women who have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy or injury. Every woman is going to have different preferences after a lumpectomy or mastectomy, and Dr. Cooperman is available to compassionately consult women on which procedure, if any, is best for their unique case.
For women looking to achieve the natural look of their breasts prior to a mastectomy, an implant reconstruction in Livingston may be the right option for them. During a breast implant reconstruction, a prosthetic implant is placed under the patient’s chest muscle. The implant will be either saline or silicone gel, and the size will be decided upon based on the patient’s unique body type and preference.
Dr. Cooperman only utilizes implant types that are FDA approved. His utmost concern is the safety of the patient, which is why he takes so much care in ensuring that each breast reconstruction procedure in Livingston is performed with the utmost care.
An implant reconstruction in Livingston, New Jersey leaves the patient with visibly less scarring, improved self-confidence, and natural, symmetrical looking breasts. The ideal candidate for breast implant reconstruction in Livingston is someone who has had a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Many patients prefer this procedure because they can have it done immediately following a mastectomy procedure.
After deciding upon a breast implant reconstruction procedure in Livingston, Dr. Cooperman will schedule the first procedure. Breast implant reconstruction typically requires two procedures in order to guarantee safe healing and optimal aesthetic results. In the first procedure in Livingston, a tissue expander will be placed under the pectoral muscle and covered with a layer of donor tissue. This will expand the breast. After 2 weeks, Dr. Cooperman will inject a sterile saline solution into the expander during weekly visits until a desired size is achieved. This results in safe and gradual growth. Once that is achieved, the second procedure will involve Dr. Cooperman removing the tissue expander and replacing it with the implant.
For a safe recovery, Dr. Cooperman is heavily involved in the post-operative care of each patient in Livingston. Each patient’s unique case will be taken into account to determine the best mode of recovery.
