The Breast Reconstruction Procedure

This surgical procedure looks to recreate a breast for a patient who has undergone a mastectomy. Dr. Hardy is nationally recognized for his extensive experience in breast reconstruction. He uses a team approach to patient care and will consult with you, your oncologist, and your general surgeon to determine the most suitable method and timeline.  

Generally, reconstruction is accomplished by using one of three methods:

  • Your own body tissue
  • Medical implants
  • A combination of the two

The Breast Reconstruction Timeline

Depending on your medical situation, your overall health and lifestyle, and your goals, you may decide to have either immediate breast reconstruction in Missoula, which is performed at the time of the mastectomy, or delayed reconstruction, which may be performed weeks, months, or even years after your initial surgery. Dr. Hardy will consult with you and your surgeon about your best course of action.
