Surgical Excellence in Reconstruction

The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Institute at Saint Agnes Hospital offers a variety of treatments for breast reconstruction. This surgery can help some women regain a normal breast appearance following a mastectomy. The results of surgery may vary from patient to patient; however, our surgeons are some of the most experienced in Maryland in breast reconstruction techniques.

Our Approach

For patients who’ve just undergone a mastectomy at the Breast Center, weight loss surgery at our Bariatric Surgery Center, or an orthopedic surgical procedure though our Orthopaedic & Spine Institute, we have all the resources needed to create a customized treatment plan for each patient’s condition and lifestyle. 

The Breast Center at Saint Agnes in Baltimore does a fantastic job in multidisciplinary treatment of patients. Our teams in five, new, state-of-the-art operating rooms, fully equipped with the latest reconstructive surgery equipment and tools. As each patient’s surgery is planned, the options for reconstructing her breasts are discussed. Although breast reconstruction can rebuild your breast, the results are highly variable:

  • A reconstructed breast will not have the same sensation and feel as the breast it replaces.

  • Visible incision lines will always be present on the breast, whether from reconstruction or mastectomy.

  • Certain surgical techniques will leave incision lines at the donor site, commonly located in less exposed areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, or buttocks.

Saint Agnes employs the top experts in their fields, including its board-certified anesthesiologists, who work closely with the physicians and the highly-skilled operating room nurses. At Saint Agnes, plastic surgeons are assigned physician assistants to provide support and help to properly position the patient for the best outcome and shortest surgical time. Patients love our facility not only because it provides the latest equipment, but it maintains our long tradition of caring for each patient.
