This active woman, in her early 40s, has chosen Breast Reconstruction surgery, following bi-lateral (double), nipple-sparing mastectomy. After discussions with Dr. Lepore, which included descriptions of the various types of reconstruction options available, she chose to have reconstructive breast implants. Her choice of implant was a form stable, silicone variety. (the so-called 'gummy bear' type of implant) Because of her thin frame, and lack of excess fat beneath the skin, Dr. Lepore enhanced the coverage of the lateral pole of the breast implants, with acellular dermal matrix, a special cell-based substance that blends with the patient's own skin. She moves forward now with her medical treatment, and with our best wishes.
