Women from Bellevue, Seattle, and other Washington communities who are considering breast reconstruction surgery find that this procedure can be a positive and healing experience. Breast reconstruction is an ideal procedure for women who have lost part or all of a breast to cancer or who were born with a breast deformity.

Breast reconstruction surgery may include the use of a saline or silicone gel implant not unlike the procedure used for breast augmentation. Other options may involve one of several procedures that use the body's own tissues to reconstruct a breast. While breast reconstruction can be very important for a patient's emotional well being, the complete and comprehensive treatment of their breast cancer is the central priority. As a breast reconstruction surgeon, Dr. Stridde wants to be sure that breast reconstruction does not in any way interfere with treatment following cancer surgery. For this reason he usually postpones breast reconstruction until after a woman completes chemotherapy or radiation therapy, which is often recommended following mastectomy.
Several breast reconstruction techniques can be used, including with or without breast implants at our practice, and the specific technique your surgeon will recommend for you depends on many factors. You will receive a much more detailed description of your surgery after Dr. Stridde evaluates your situation during the consultation.

Recovery after Breast Reconstruction Surgery
After surgery, your new breast may appear larger than your other breast, due to temporary inflammation and swelling which should lessen within a few weeks. You will receive specific instructions about showering, caring for incisions, and wearing a support bra. Every woman recovers differently, and recovery time depends on the breast reconstruction technique used, but most women are back to feeling like their normal selves and taking part in their regular daily activities after a few weeks. Dr. Striddecan share more details with you and give you a better picture of the recovery process at your consultation.
