“Breast reconstruction is about more than re-creating shape. It’s about giving you the most natural and attractive appearance possible.”
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Keith Rose believes achieving a patient’s aesthetic vision is as important as functional improvement. His goal with procedures is to go beyond contour alone and to bring balance, fullness, and beauty to the breasts.
This perspective, in addition to his experience, eye for detail, and personal commitment to patients, is the reason that Corpus Christi women choose him for breast reconstruction. If your goal is to restore your breasts as well as a sense of femininity, we invite you to learn more about Dr. Rose’s practice.
Reshaping Your Future
Patients seek breast reconstruction for one of several reasons, including trauma and mastectomy in response to cancer. Some women who have had an earlier breast reconstruction want a second procedure to revise or continue the reconstruction process.
Dr. Rose offers a transparent and collaborative approach to patients. Listening to your goals and setting expectations for your outcome are extremely important to him. For some patients—particularly women post-mastectomy—surgery represents the end of a long road to recovery and the opportunity to take control of their treatment. He welcomes the opportunity to provide this experience to those in his care.
Exploring Breast Reconstruction
Visit our Corpus Christi offices for your initial consultation. During your time with Dr. Rose, you’ll have chance to:
- Talk about what you’d like to accomplish with surgery.
- Provide a full medical history to help in designing your procedure.
- Have a physical examination to make sure you are a good candidate for breast reconstruction.
Our offices offer a comfortable, personal, and private setting for talking through your options and Dr. Rose’s surgical plan, which typically includes re-creating the breast with an implant. This approach lets Dr. Rose establish the right shape, volume, and balance between the breasts. If you are seeking an improvement upon an earlier procedure that used implants, you may benefit from a different implant size or style as well as other revisions Dr. Rose can offer.
Your Experience with Breast Reconstruction
Procedures take place in Corpus Christi at either a local hospital or our start-of the art operating facility, which includes a private recovery room. Many patients opt for the latter option and appreciate the support and attentive care our team offers. Typically:
- Surgery lasts from 2 to 4 hours depending on Dr. Rose’s surgical plan.
- After the procedure, expect about 1 week off from work and 3 weeks off from strenuous physical activity.
- Depending on the procedure, our team will provide the patient with a comprehensive post-operative plan to ensure a speedy, safe recovery.
Dr. Rose and our team will coordinate treatment and recovery with you as well as with other medical professionals involved in your ongoing care. By working together and basing your breast reconstruction on your personal goals, you should see a significant improvement in both your body’s contour and in the aesthetics of your breasts following surgery.
