What Our Metairie Patients Have to Say
Dr. Tandon and his staff are the absolute best! Six months ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The best treatment option for me was a double mastectomy followed by reconstruction surgery. I am eternally grateful it was Dr. Tandon and his staff that were to be my Plastic Surgery team. They saw me for consultations at least 3 times prior to surgery where I was treated with deep compassion and professionalism.View On Google

Our plastic surgeon is trained in all areas of plastic surgery, but has dedicated his practice to helping women on their breast cancer journey. Here are some of the most popular treatments patients from Metairie and the greater New Orleans metropolitan area turn to Tandon Plastic Surgery for:
Natural Breast Reconstruction
Dr. Tandon uses advanced reconstructive techniques to perform natural-tissue breast reconstruction at our Metairie practice. This surgery involves using the patients’ own tissue from their abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or back to produce a natural result. Whether you are preparing for or have already undergone a mastectomy, Dr. Tandon can provide natural breast reconstruction surgery for outstanding aesthetic results.
Breast Reconstruction With Implants
We offer immediate (also known as direct-to-implant) and delayed breast implant reconstructions. While immediate reconstruction is preferred because it requires fewer surgeries, delayed breast reconstruction after a mastectomy may be better suited to some candidates. Breast reconstruction with implants can help you reconnect with your body, enhancing your self-image and improving your quality of life.
Hybrid Breast Reconstruction
Also referred to as composite breast reconstruction, this type of surgery combines the advantages of fat transfer with implant reconstruction. This reconstructive cosmetic surgery can be an excellent option for women who wish to have the natural-looking results of fat transfer but do not have the excess tissue to reach the size they desire.
Breast Asymmetry Surgery
Some women may experience asymmetry between a reconstructed breast and their natural breast. Dr. Tandon is a plastic surgeon who will consult you on ways to achieve greater symmetry, including techniques such as breast reduction, breast lift, fat grafting, and more. Breast asymmetry surgery is typically performed after patients have healed from the initial phase of breast reconstruction.
After you have fully healed from breast reconstruction, our plastic surgeon can consult you on several reconstructive techniques, including skin flap surgery, skin grafts, and medical tattooing, to rebuild the darker-colored areola and nipple. Nipple reconstruction can make you feel like your true self again.
Paying for Your Treatment With Insurance
Although these services incorporate elements of cosmetic surgery, your health insurance should cover the cost of breast reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy. If you receive benefits in connection with a mastectomy and opt for breast reconstruction, coverage is provided for surgery of the other breast to achieve a symmetrical appearance.
For more information about paying for treatment or your coverage, get in touch with our experienced team today. Our plastic surgeon welcomes patients from throughout the New Orleans area and beyond.
