Case 365

This 48-year-old female was referred to Dr. Kerr from her general surgeon to discuss breast reconstruction options after mastectomy.

 She underwent a bilateral mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction using tissue expanders after discussing her options with Dr. Kerr in detail.  This is the most common type of breast reconstruction performed in the United States.

Her first surgery was combined with the mastectomy.  Dr. Kerr admitted to the hospital overnight.  Her subsequent operations included implant placement, nipple reconstruction, and fat grafting (used to camouflage the implant and make are more natural result, also give the same result as liposuction to the areas we take the fat from).  These pictures show her final results after several months.

Case 139

This patient from Austin, Texas came to see Dr. Kerr at his Round Rock, Texas plastic surgery practice for breast reconstruction after being diagnosed with a breast cancer and learning that she was going to have to undergo a mastectomy.  Understandably, this is very emotional time and Dr. Kerr and his staff pride themselves in helping to empower breast reconstruction patients while also teaching them about the options they have to restore their breasts after cancer surgery.

During her consultation with Dr. Kerr spent about an hour teaching her about the various types of breast reconstruction surgeries that are available. 

Her breast reconstruction involved several stages:  initially an expander was placed at the time of mastectomy, after expanding her breasts over about two months the expanders were removed and a silicone breast implant was placed, two months after this nipples were reconstructed, and finally autologous fat transfer (AFT) was used to add fullness and shape to the upper breast using fat harvested via liposuction from the abdomen.  This is similar to the BRAVA technique also offered at synergy plastic surgery using autologous fat transfer (BRAVA-AFT) but also uses implants rather than fat grafting alone. 

If you're interested in finding out what results are possible for you, request a complementary consultation online, or call our Austin area plastic surgery office at (512) 244-1444.  Dr. Kerr provides all types of breast surgery including: breast reconstruction, breast augmentation and breast enhancement surgery including breast lift (mastopexy) and breast reduction for patients located in Austin, Texas and neighboring Texas communities like Cedar Park, Leander, Georgetown, and Pflugerville.

Case 247

This 57-year-old patient from Austin, Texas came to Dr. Kerr after being diagnosed with breast cancer and facing the need for a mastectomy. Dr. Kerr discussed breast reconstruction options with her in great detail for about an hour, and ultimately they decided on a breast tissue expander that would be placed at the same time as the mastectomy.  In a staged approach we then placed soft breast implants, reconstructed her nipples, and transferred fat with liposuction techniques from her abdomen to her breasts to further improve her results.  In the end her breast shape and appearance are excellent, she is thrilled with her reconstruction results.

Case 236

Case 241

This 52-year-old female was sent to Dr. Kerr after seeing a general surgeon to address her benign breast tumors and discomfort from them.  Her general surgeon was discussing a prophylactic mastectomy to help solve these issues and felt breast reconstruction would be a great option for her.

Dr. Kerr spent an hour discussing options and strategies with her during the first consultation.  Because her breast shape was smaller (small C/full B) Dr. Kerr felt a nipple sparing approach with her only incision being placed in the breast fold was an option.  This incision is only slightly larger than a breast augmentation patient but can really only be performed in smaller breasted patients.

These photos show her after expansion, placement of shaped gummy bear implants, and fat grafting.

Case 97

This patient from near Austin, Texas came to Dr. Kerr at his Round Rock, Texas plastic surgery practice for breast reconstruction after being diagnosed with breast cancer and learning that she was going to have to undergo a mastectomy.  Understandably, this is very emotional time and Dr. Kerr and his staff pride themselves in helping to empower breast reconstruction patients while also teaching them about the options they have to restore their breasts after cancer surgery.

During her consultation with Dr. Kerr spent about an hour teaching her about the various types of breast reconstruction surgeries that are available.  Dr. Kerr showed her where incisions are placed, and talked in detail about her recovery. He worked with her general surgeon to arrange a time for initial surgery and then he admitted her to the hospital for a few days after surgery.

Her breast reconstruction involved three stages:  initially an expander was placed at the time of mastectomy, after expanding her breasts over about two months the expanders were removed and a silicone breast implant was placed, two months after this nipples were reconstructed. 

While this patient chose a very alternative approach to areolar tattooing the results are still unique and beautiful.  Most patients opt for an areolar tattoo that most closely matched their native breast. 

Overall the size and shape of her reconstructed breasts fit her body very well and she is tremendously happy to have both her new breasts and her feminine shape for the years ahead.

Case 240

This 55-year-old female found Dr. Kerr after being referred by her general surgeon.  She was interested in discussing reconstruction after a mastectomy and what options where available for her.

Because her cancer was small and located a large distance from her nipple a nipple sparing mastectomy and breast reconstruction was possible.  This allows the patient to keep their own nipple and step the nipple reconstruction step.  This method is only suitable for the right patients with a favorable breast shape (C cup or smaller) and tumor size and position.

This photo shows her after breast expansion, implant placement, and fat grafting.

Case 342

This 32-year-old female came to see Dr. Kerr to discuss breast reconstruction options. She had been diagnosed with a left sided breast cancer and wanted to pursue reconstruction after a planned nipple sparing mastectomy in Austin, Texas.

Dr. Kerr met with her for about an hour on her initial visit. He showed her pictures and discussed options.

At the first stage a breast expander was placed and at the second stage the expander was removed, an implant was placed, and fat grafting was performed.
