Breast Reconstruction surgery – for women who have had surgery for cancer, women with congenital anomalies and women who have suffered complications after previous surgery – is the main focus of Dr Campbell-Lloyd’s practise at LOSA. Dr Campbell-Lloyd is one of the only surgeons in Queensland with the necessary training and experience to claim to be an expert in DIEP flap surgery, which is widely acknowledged to be the gold-standard in breast reconstruction.
For women who have experienced breast cancer, there are a range of options to discuss. Some women choose to “go flat”, other women opt for rebuilding a breast using an implant or their own tissue. Some women are able to modify the breast to disguise the effects of cancer removal and radiotherapy. These are complex discussions which require time to allow for questions, and to ensure that whatever choice is made is the right choice for each patient.
