Initiating autologous fat grafting at the time of the mastectomy has numerous advantages, the most obvious of which is that the patient can leave the facility with a small breast mound, and some fullness in the breast.
Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
The Aesthetic Surgery Center of Winter Park is adjacent to the Breast Center at the Bougainvillea Clinique. As one of Orlando’s most highly respected general surgeons with over 30 years of experience in breast surgery, Dr. Wier will expand and improve the Breast Center’s services for breast cancer patients.
By providing general surgery services, Dr. Wier and Dr. Hartog together will be able to provide immediate breast reconstruction using autologous fat grafting (AFT) at the same time as a mastectomy procedure. This service is particularly valuable for patients who choose prophylactic mastectomy procedures due to a strong family history of breast cancer, or a BRCA-positive condition (breast cancer early onset). Additionally the Center will be able to provide the full spectrum of breast surgery procedures for breast cancer, breast reconstruction and cosmetic breast surgery.
“Initiating autologous fat grafting at the time of the mastectomy has numerous advantages, the most obvious of which is that the patient can leave the facility with a small breast mound, and some fullness in the breast,” says Dr. Jeffrey Hartog, the Medical Director of the Bougainvillea Clinique. “This is a great advantage when post-mastectomy patients try to wear normal clothing, since it maintains the appearance of a normal breast.”
Dr. Wier has been in practice since 1986, and is currently the Medical Director at the Orlando Surgery Center. Apart from providing advanced reconstructive breast surgery for breast cancer patients, Dr. Wier will also provide other general surgery outpatient procedures at the Aesthetic Surgery Center.
The Breast Center at the Bougainvillea Clinique welcomes Dr. Wier to the team at the Aesthetic Surgery Center of Winter Park, with the belief that his expertise will help further one of the primary goals of the practice: to make the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer as easy and comfortable as possible for patients.
