Orange County, California (PRWEB) January 30, 2009
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Smith is proud to announce the launch of his new breast reconstruction Web site (http://www.orangecountybreastreconstruction.com). In addition to offering a full range of plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Smith specializes in performing Newport Beach breast reconstruction. The goal of his new site is to provide women and their families with important information about breast reconstruction and how it can help women who have survived breast cancer.
"I designed this new Web site in order to give breast cancer patients and their families a way to learn about breast reconstruction from the comfort of their own homes," says Dr. Smith. "Breast cancer treatment is one of the most difficult things most women have to go through, and I am committed to making the reconstruction process as simple and successful as possible for each of my patients."
One unique feature of Dr. Smith's new Orange County and Newport Beach breast reconstruction Web site is a section on the homepage where different types of visitors can find information specific to them. There is a section for women who have already had a mastectomy and are now considering breast reconstruction, a section for women who currently have breast cancer and want to learn about combining breast reconstruction with mastectomy, and a section where friends and family of breast cancer patients can learn more about the disease and breast reconstruction. The site also provides a general overview of the breast reconstruction process and a photo gallery of Dr. Smith's previous reconstruction patients.
"There are important differences between an immediate reconstruction - one that is performed at the same time as the mastectomy - and a delayed reconstruction, which allows cancer treatment to be completed before any reconstructive work," adds Irvine breast surgeon Dr. Smith. "Women and their loved ones need reliable information to decide on the options that are right for them. I'm especially proud of the section we created for friends and family of women battling breast cancer. Having a strong support network is essential for any woman fighting breast cancer, and I feel it's important to provide friends and family with information about what to expect and how they can help."
In addition to providing an overview of the breast reconstruction process, Dr. Smith's new site also outlines a number of things that breast reconstruction patients should be aware of as they consider their plastic surgery options. For example, Dr. Smith discusses the implant choices available to his Orange County and Newport Beach breast reconstruction patients, and he talks about the differences between implant reconstruction and flap reconstruction. He also provides information about the risks and complications of breast reconstruction surgery, and he outlines what patients can expect after the procedure is performed.
A top priority for any woman considering a breast reconstruction procedure should be choosing a highly-trained and properly credentialed surgeon. Dr. Smith is certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. He completed residencies at George Washington University and the University of California, Irvine, as well as a fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles. Further information about Dr. Smith's educational background and plastic surgery experience is provided in a section about him on the new breast reconstruction Web site. This section is a great way for breast reconstruction patients in Orange County to learn about Dr. Smith's qualifications before coming in for a consultation.
"When I think about the many aspects that I find rewarding as a plastic surgeon, performing breast reconstruction comes to mind immediately," says Dr. Smith. "My breast reconstruction patients are incredibly strong, inspirational women and being able to help them regain their self-confidence is truly an honor."
