Breast Reconstruction in New York City (NYC)
Dr. Joshua Greenwald typically performs breast reconstruction for patients who have lost one or both breasts due to aggressive breast cancer treatments. Depending on the health condition and desires of each patient, breast reconstruction can be performed either in conjunction with mastectomy (breast removal surgery) or at a later date when the breast tissues have healed. While immediate breast reconstruction provides psychological benefits, this procedure is not appropriate for all patients. In order to determine which surgical approach is the best for each patient, Dr. Greenwald conducts thorough pre-surgical consultations.
At the time of consultations, Dr. Greenwald also helps Westchester / New York City breast reconstruction patients select the most appropriate breast reconstruction techniques. He is highly experienced in both breast reconstruction with breast implants and breast reconstruction using patient’s own tissue. During the former procedure, saline or silicone breast implants are inserted in the chest to create a chest mound. In order to create a skin pocket for the implant, Dr. Greenwald often uses special tissue expanders. During flap breast reconstruction, tissue is removed from another part of the patient’s body and transplanted into the chest to create breasts that look as natural as possible.
As a seasoned reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgeon, Dr. Greenwald specializes in a range of sophisticated breast enhancement procedures. He has many years’ experience performing male breast reduction, female breast reduction and breast lift in Westchester County. He is also a well-known NYC breast augmentation specialist.
