Reconstructive Surgery From a Women’s Perspective
The decision to reconstruct a breast is a highly personal one. Women that choose to take this step are on a journey and reconstruction is often the path that brings psychological healing and restoration of a woman’s self-confidence. The importance of this process should never be underestimated. Dr. Fisher has extensive experience with breast cancer survivors and works closely with each one to create the surgical plan that will meet their needs and expectations best.

With a broad range of techniques at her disposal, including some she has perfected in her practice, Dr. Fisher is uniquely qualified to help women achieve beautifully natural results through a reconstruction surgery (click here to view our before and after gallery).

Restore Your Breasts, Rebuild Your Life
The loss of one or both breasts, due to cancer surgery, a congenital breast disorder or a heightened risk of breast cancer, is a traumatic event for any woman. The breasts are typically seen as a sign of femininity, and when a woman loses this feature, it can impact her in psychological as well as physical ways. The process of reconstruction is a vital step in the healing process for many women, allowing them to take control and make choices about their bodies once again.
With compassion, personalized attention and expert care, Dr. Fisher will guide you through the reconstruction process. Her skills in both traditional implants and innovative flap techniques allow her to tailor your procedure to your unique situation based on a variety of factors. She will listen to your concerns and goals and guide you in your journey from breast cancer patient to breast cancer survivor.
