Breast Reconstruction Surgical Procedure

More complicated than most cosmetic breast enhancement procedures, breast reconstruction will require a hospital stay of a few days. Also, breast reconstruction may entail more than one surgery. Plastic surgeon Wally Zollman, M.D., will discuss this in more detail during your consultation.

The most common procedure used during breast reconstruction involves skin expansion and the subsequent use of a breast implant. Other methods of breast reconstruction surgery involve a technique called flap reconstruction. This method involves using skin and tissue from other areas of the body (back, buttocks, or abdomen) to form a new breast. As your breast reconstruction plastic surgeon, Dr. Zollman will explain these procedures in more detail and explain which method he believes would be most beneficial for your breast reconstruction.

Insurance Coverage for Breast Reconstruction

Federal and state laws require insurance companies to cover breast reconstruction surgery for Indiana woman who have had a mastectomy. The legislation was enacted to provide breast cancer survivors the right to breast reconstruction without having to fight with insurance companies. The laws allow the patient and her plastic surgeon to make decisions regarding the breast reconstruction, including the type of surgical procedure used and whether or not surgery is needed on the second breast to create symmetry.

Patients who are seeking breast reconstruction for breast deformities not related to a mastectomy may also qualify for insurance coverage of the reconstructive surgery procedure. Unfortunately, it may be a more difficult process. Our staff, including our attentive plastic surgeon, will help Indianapolis, Indiana patients with their insurance paperwork.

If, for whatever reason, you do not qualify for insurance coverage of your breast reconstruction, there are several available financing options at Zollman Plastic Surgery. Our staff will be happy to discuss these plans with you.
