Breast reconstruction is typically obtained by women who have had either a mastectomy or lumpectomy as part of their cancer treatment, or to deal with the aftermath of an injury. As with a breast augmentation, implants are often used, but sometimes tissue transferred from another part of the body may also be employed. The goal with this procedure is to create natural looking results that approximate or improve upon the patient’s appearance prior to the procedure, and the results shown on these pages feature some of Dr. J’s satisfied reconstruction patients.
At one time, women who had mastectomies or lost a breast due to an injury typically resorted to prosthetics to maintain their appearance. Today, medical science in general and the field of plastic surgery has evolved to the point where superb breast reconstruction before and after photos like those on this page are realistic for most patients when they take advantage of the abilities of Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FICS, FACS.

The doctor's approach to breast reconstruction after mastectomy or any trauma that results in a loss of breast tissue is highly individualized to the needs of each patient.
Dr. J understands that women who have lost a significant amount of breast tissue are likely to be experiencing a period of adjustment and, at times, great difficulty. He is therefore carefulto be sensitive to their needs while providing them the information they need to make an intelligent and fully informed decision regarding their choice of a breast reconstructive surgery.
Fortunately, as the dramatic breast reconstruction before and after photos on this page demonstrate, patients who take advantage of the help of top plastic surgeons can expect to experience a dramatic return to a more attractive, normal appearance.
