Aesthetic Flat Closure for Breast Reconstruction in New York and New Jersey


As the national conversation around post-mastectomy options evolves, more women are choosing Aesthetic Flat Closure as a definitive and less invasive alternative. Dr. Boris Volshteyn, a leading expert in reconstructive surgery, offers this procedure to women who prefer not to pursue traditional reconstruction or have been dissatisfied with their previous outcomes.

Understanding Aesthetic Flat Closure

Aesthetic Flat Closure is a surgical procedure designed for women seeking a flat contour following a mastectomy. It addresses the growing demand for an option that avoids more complex reconstructions. Reports from institutions like the National Institute of Health and the National Cancer Institute highlight a significant trend: a considerable percentage of women prefer this method for its simplicity and effectiveness, with about 74% reporting satisfaction with their results.

Candidacy for Aesthetic Flat Closure

Candidates for Aesthetic Flat Closure include:
- Women who desire a non-reconstructive approach after mastectomy.
- Patients who have undergone previous reconstruction but are unhappy with their results.
- Individuals who prefer a less complex and more natural post-mastectomy contour.

The Technique

Dr. Volshteyn employs advanced surgical techniques tailored to each patient’s anatomy and needs:
- Preparation: Skin and subcutaneous tissues are infiltrated with an anesthetic solution.
- Incision and Scar Removal: The previous mastectomy scar is excised to prepare for a clean aesthetic closure.
- Flap Management: Flaps below the scar are elevated, and the inframammary fold is released, contributing to a smooth, flat contour across the chest wall.
- Contouring: Techniques such as direct excision and liposuction address varying skin flap thicknesses to create a symmetric appearance, particularly vital in bilateral mastectomies.
-  Additional Benefits: The procedure can offer an upper abdominal tummy tuck effect, enhancing the overall aesthetic result.

Surgery Details

- Extent of Surgery: The incisions may extend into the axilla to ensure a fully flat appearance. Drains are typically placed to manage postoperative fluid, and a compression garment is applied to support healing.
- Insurance Coverage:** Most health insurance plans cover Aesthetic Flat Closure based on current healthcare legislation, recognizing it as a medically appropriate and necessary procedure.

Possible Complications

While Aesthetic Flat Closure is designed to be less invasive, potential complications may include:
- Scarring
- Hematoma
- Infection
- Sensory changes

Dr. Volshteyn’s approach prioritizes patient safety and informed consent, discussing all potential risks and benefits during the consultation process.
