If, due to mastectomy, injury, or an inherited physiological problem, you have lost a breast, you may be a good candidate for breast reconstruction. New Jersey women come to our practice for natural, artful breast reconstruction surgery to restore their feminine figures. The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction employs several distinct breast reconstruction methods including: tissue expansion, pedicled TRAM flap, latissimus flap, free TRAM flap, and DIEP flap. The breast reconstruction surgeons at our New Jersey practice are able to produce beautiful, natural results for women with a variety of different body types by selecting the surgical method that is best for each woman’s own particular needs and aesthetic preferences.
When performing breast reconstruction at our New Jersey surgical facility, our physicians employ a series of involved operations to rebuild the breast mound and recreate the nipple. The breast can be reconstructed using tissue expansion, the pedicled TRAM flap, the latissimus flap, the free TRAM flap, or the DIEP flap method. During your breast reconstruction consultation at our New Jersey practice, our doctors will discuss these options with you to determine which method will be most appropriate based on your needs and goals.
A number of our patients have formed a breast cancer and breast reconstruction support group that meets at our New Jersey office. Contact our plastic reconstructive surgery practice for more information about breast reconstruction and our patients’ support group.

“My experience with the Institute For Advanced Reconstruction at the Plastic Surgery Center helped make my journey of having breast cancer twice, not so traumatic. My doctor and his staff made my experience of having reconstruction of both breasts a hopeful and positive one.“
“Being diagnosed with breast cancer is a devastating ordeal. I would only wish that every woman that has to hear the words “you have breast cancer” has a surgeon on their side like Dr. Elkwood. The staff at the Plastic Surgery Center went above and beyond what a patient should expect in service and caring professionalism. I would highly recommend Dr. Elkwood because no matter what the dilemma, he would calmly and confidently get you through it. I never had a doubt that I was in the right place for my reconstruction surgery.“
“In December of 2009 my world turned upside down. Breast cancer is certainly a huge pill to swallow. Dr. Rose was recommended to me for the reconstruction part of my surgery. The fear and anxiety I felt through the entire process was a natural part of my journey. I must say, the first visit to the office was a reassurance that I was under the best care I could hope for. The comforting and understanding manner immediately made me know that everything would work out in the best way possible. And it has. No one wants to hear the “positive” word when it concerns cancer. Dr. Rose, on the other hand, has been a very positive part of the past eighteen months. As well as quality personal care, the quality of your work is outstanding. My thanks to you and your valuable staff for all you have done. I am truly grateful.“
