Best NYC Breast Cancer Plastic Surgeon Post Mastectomy
FREE RECONSTRUCTIVE BREAST SURGERY CONSULTATIONS
Please note – insurance will cover your breast reconstruction surgery post mastectomy: The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 is a federal law requiring any insurance company covering mastectomies to also cover all stages of breast reconstruction, including surgery of the unaffected breast in order to produce a symmetrical appearance, as well as coverage for prostheses and treatment of physical complications. This applies to implant-based reconstruction as well as reconstruction using your body’s own tissues, regardless of whether these procedures are performed at the time of mastectomy or at a later date. We will work closely with you and your insurance company to make sure you receive the full benefits to which you are entitled.
The Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC works with all insurance carriers (we will contact your insurance company and submit for you). We are happy to work with all insurance companies on these matters. You will enjoy the luxury and benefit of a top rated concierge environment without the hassle of long hospital waiting room times and paperwork. Most policies reimburse patients for most of the cost of breast reconstruction surgery. Our surgical coordinator will help you with a quote.
Reconstructive breast surgery is intended for patients who have lost breast tissue as a result of cancer or other medical concerns, such as congenital deformities. For cancer patients, cancer survivors, and trauma survivors, this technique offers the possibility of restoring a more feminine chest contour and improving patients’ self-confidence. If you are facing the loss of breast tissue due to medical reasons, breast reconstruction may be right for you.
Dr. Blechman of the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC offers:
(1) Immediate breast reconstruction: (working with your breast surgeon in the hospital at the time of the cancer removal surgery to perform breast reconstruction with or without breast implants); Dr. Keith Blechman will work closely with your breast cancer surgeons to offer immediate reconstruction following mastectomy. Suitability for this procedure will depend on the nature of the breast cancer and the likely need for subsequent cancer treatment. The decision to offer this procedure is often made in conjunction with both the reconstructive and cancer therapy team.
(2) Delayed Breast Reconstruction: breast reconstruction after your cancer surgery.
