Dr. Madhukar G. Chhatre is a compassionate, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon trained to deliver optimal breast reconstruction results. He offers this procedure at our Kansas City, MO-area office for women facing a partial or full mastectomy to help rebuild the breast after cancer treatment or trauma. Dr. Chhatre can often perform breast reconstruction as part of your mastectomy procedure, or at a later date once breast cancer treatment is completed. This procedure allows women to still maintain their feminine figure and emotional well-being. Breast reconstruction benefits can include a boost in self-confidence and the ability to feel more comfortable in clothes again.

Achieving the Most Natural Appearance
The timing of your breast reconstruction and the methods used are important to the overall success. Dr. Chhatre will work closely with your oncology team to create a personalized treatment plan best suited for your needs. With the latest advancements and techniques in breast reconstruction, this procedure can positively impact your life in a number of ways by restoring your feminine figure, providing permanent and lasting results, increasing your confidence, and helping bring closure to a difficult time in your life.
Advanced Techniques for Optimal Results
Women who underwent breast reconstruction in the past often had their breasts completely removed, with an external prosthetic as the only option to maintaining their feminine figure. During breast reconstruction, Dr. Chhatre is able to remove the areola, nipple, and breast tissue within while maintaining the majority of your breasts’ skin.
Immediate Reconstruction and Other Considerations
By combining your breast reconstruction procedure with mastectomy, also known as immediate breast reconstruction, implants can immediately be inserted after the breast tissue is removed. Breast reconstruction can also be combined with a breast augmentation or a breast lift to help patients achieve a firmer, perkier bust line than before mastectomy.

Breast reconstruction gives a natural-looking shape to the body, allowing women to fit more comfortably in clothes and swimwear, and still enjoy all the activities and relationships they once enjoyed before breast cancer. In most cases, this procedure is covered by insurance plans.
