No Incisions, No New Scars! Sensation is Restored.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 13, 2011
When women undergo a mastectomy, recovering and getting their life back is the most important thing on their mind. They want their breasts back but want to avoid the knife. Well it's now possible with Dr. Roger Khouri's breakthrough, minimally invasive breast reconstruction after mastectomy technique.
This cutting-edge procedure known as Micro-Fat Transfer is performed at the Miami Breast Center by Dr. Roger K. Khouri MD, FACS himself. Last year Dr. Khouri's work was awarded the Best Scientific Achievement at the Annual Meeting of the European Association of Plastic Surgeons (EURAPS).
Compared to the traditional methods, his technique involves no incisions, no new scars, and no foreign objects are placed in your body. It recreates a breast that looks natural, feels natural, and has sensation. Fat is gently liposuctioned from one area of the body and meticulously injected back at the breast site that has been enlarged by the Brava expansion.
Some outstanding benefits about this procedure is that it is performed as an outpatient procedure. It is minimally invasive, which means there is no cutting, only injections and external suction. The patient's down time is minimal. Usually patients are back to their normal life within three days. Three days! The procedure is safe and effective with permanent results. (See 5 year study.) The liposuction required to harvest the fat will also be a bonus to the patient's over all body contour.
A common procedure for breast reconstruction has been the Implant Reconstruction. Here's what the American Society of Plastic Surgeons had to say about implants, "It's important to know that your breast implants are not permanent and may require replacement during your lifetime." Not to mention the risk of complications and loss of sensation. And because it is a foreign object it leads to an artificial feeling breast mound.
Another traditional procedure, Flap Reconstruction, uses the woman's own body tissue (taken from the abdomen, buttocks, and other areas) to recreate a breast mound. It creates a more natural feeling breast but you end up looking like patchwork. It is the most invasive surgery of all lasting 2-7 hours and recovery can take up to several months. This technique creates additional scars to the breast and to the part of the body where the flap comes from. And secondary procedures most likely will be needed.
The Micro-Fat transfer technique has the most advantages. This innovative procedure is the very first that facilitates reconstruction of an entire breast from fat with no major surgery. Plus, the procedure is covered by insurance for breast cancer patients.
