Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer or learning you have significant genetic risk of developing breast cancer can be an overwhelming experience. Our surgeons are here to help. The Breast Reconstruction Program at the Brigham and Women's Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is known for its excellence in reconstruction and the personalized care we provide to every one of our breast cancer patients.

Our highly skilled reconstructive plastic surgeons collaborate with cancer specialists from Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center, including breast cancer surgeons and medical oncologists, to provide comprehensive breast cancer care. Our team works with you to create a treatment plan that addresses your needs, maintains or restores your body image and enhances your quality of life.

Dedicated to You and Your Needs

Our nationally renowned experts offer an extensive variety of reconstruction options and a full spectrum of advanced reconstruction techniques. We care for patients at every point in their treatment journey, offering immediate reconstruction, delayed reconstruction or preventive care.

We are skilled in innovative procedures that focus on preserving the breast's natural appearance (oncoplastic surgery), minimizing the risk of postsurgical arm swelling (lymphedema) and protecting sensation in breast tissue (flap neurotization).

Although we do hundreds of breast reconstruction procedures each year, we know that no two patients are alike. That's why our surgical team works closely with you to understand your reconstruction goals, educate you on all of your options and help you choose which procedure will give you the outcome you desire.

Many of our surgeons concentrate exclusively on breast reconstruction. Bringing extensive experience with some of the world's top training programs, our team is devoted to helping breast cancer patients feel good about themselves.
