Dr. Lee performs strategic breast reconstruction in Beverly Hills for cancer survivors, as well as those affected by congenital breast defects (tuberous breast deformity or Poland’s syndrome). Dr. Lee will advise you on all the different options for reconstruction and timing of reconstruction depending on your individual breast cancer treatment or reconstructive need. The entire staff at PERK will provide emotional support throughout your surgical journey and healing. We understand that the choice of whether to undergo reconstruction is entirely personal.
Breast reconstruction can be performed directly following a mastectomy, or at a slightly later date. When it is performed immediately, it may lesson the emotional trauma associated with mastectomy.
“Dr. Lee and her staff are professional, caring and sincerely interested in giving you the best results for your procedure. I knew from my first consult that I would choose Dr. Lee as my surgeon. She is warm and friendly yet very professional. She is very upfront about results/expectations, which I very much appreciated.”
Your recovery depends on the type of reconstruction performed. With implant reconstruction, you typically stay for one night of observation in the hospital. With flap reconstruction, you stay in the hospital for 2-3 days.
Health insurance carriers are required to cover your Los Angeles breast reconstruction according the Women’s Health Act of 1998. Dr. Lee can help you with the process of negotiating with your insurance carrier and will support you with all the necessary paperwork.
