Breast Reconstruction Surgery (Post-Mastectomy Surgery) – Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ

At Elite Plastic Surgery, it is our goal to help women feel whole again with breast reconstruction surgery. Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Dr. Rozbeh Torabi, and Dr. Radbeh Torabi can restore the breasts back to a more normal shape, appearance, and size following a mastectomy, lumpectomy, skin alterations from radiation treatment, uneven breasts since birth, ruptured breast implants, or a trauma to the breast tissues. By applying the latest advancements in medical technology, Dr. Razbeh Torabi and Dr. Radbeh Torabi can complete a partial or complete rebuilding of the breast(s) using synthetic implants, your own fat, muscle, and tissue, or a combination of these techniques.

Breast reconstruction surgery is common to restore one or both breasts after:
    • A mastectomy, lumpectomy, or other breast cancer treatment
    • A traumatic injury that damaged the breast tissue
    • Congenital (birth) defects, such as a missing breast
    • Extreme weight loss


The most common breast reconstruction techniques practiced at Elite Plastic Surgery are:
    • A Transferring skin, muscle, and fat tissue from other areas to the breast
    • A combination of implant and natural tissue enhancements


Following a mastectomy, the skin and fat are taken from another part of the body and used to create a breast mound. The tissue can be taken from the back, buttocks, and thigh, but is more commonly taken from the abdomen. Depending on the flap used, the tissue can either be transferred with its own blood flow or small blood vessels will need to be reconnected by the plastic surgeon under a microscope to reestablish blood flow to the flap.


Following a mastectomy, the plastic surgeon will either insert a gel implant (one-stage reconstruction), or a temporary tissue expander (two-stage reconstruction) into a pocket formed under the muscle and remaining skin on the chest wall. In two-stage reconstruction, saline solution is gradually inserted into the tissue expander to stretch the muscle and skin. Once the pocket has reached the desired size, the expander is left in place for 2 – 3 months. Then, the expander is removed and replaced with a silicone gel implant.

You may also need nipple reconstruction, breast augmentation, a breast lift, breast reduction, or a combination of these surgeries to enhance symmetry and provide the best aesthetic results. If only one breast is being reconstructed, the surgeon will try to match the reconstructed breast to your natural breast.


Many breast reconstruction patients experience a dull ache for a couple of days after surgery, so your plastic surgeon will prescribe pain killers and muscle relaxers as needed for the discomfort. It is also a requirement for breast reconstruction patients to wear a supportive bra day and night. The recovery time for breast surgery is 2 – 4 weeks with some patients experiencing breast tenderness even longer. Strenuous activity should be avoided for a 6-week period, but light activity can begin as early as 4 weeks. Follow all of the aftercare instructions provided by our team. Drs. Torabi will discuss with you any specific risks or complications prior to your specific procedure. Wound breakdown and infection can be a problem especially in tobacco users, or if aftercare and follow up treatments are not adhered to properly.


The Women’s Health and Cancer Act (WHCA) was signed into federal law in 1998 and requires that health insurance companies cover breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer. For more information on this law and breast cancer, please visit
