Dr. Tandon uses the latest surgical techniques and methods to boost his patients' confidence with natural-looking results that last. He will also be able to support you as you embark on your life-changing surgical journey. No matter who completed your mastectomy, Ravi Tandon, MD, will work with them to ensure you receive the results you desire.
Why Choose a Microsurgeon?
Though patients will always experience some numbness in their breasts after a mastectomy or double mastectomy, a microsurgeon can help restore some of the sensation. Choosing a microsurgeon for your reconstruction can allow your results to look and feel as much as possible like your breasts did before mastectomy.
How Can Microsurgery
Improve My Results?
A mastectomy severs the nerves that provide feeling to the breast and nipple, leading to numbness or a loss of sensation. During a DIEP flap procedure in the hospital, microsurgery techniques involving allograft nerve tissue can connect the nerves in the chest with the nerves in the tissue from the donor site, improving sensation.
