What is prepectoral breast reconstruction?

Prepectoral breast reconstruction is the process of placing the breast implants directly underneath the breast skin but over the chest muscles, sparing the patient the need to cut or interfere with the muscles. For certain patients, this method of reconstruction has many advantages over the traditional approach of using a tissue expander that can help improve one’s comfort and body image, and also expedite recovery.

What are the benefits of prepectoral breast reconstruction?

  • Can help alleviate pain associated with stretching the muscles
  • Sidesteps the issue associated with submuscular implant placement
  • Reduced muscle fatigue
  • Lowered risk of implant animation or distortion
  • Lowered risk of postoperative discomfort and soreness
  • Improved look and feel of the implant
  • Expedited recovery
  • Natural-looking outcome
  • Long-lasting, sustainable results

“Dr. Lee is amazing! I love my results, and she made my whole experience very pleasant. She's very personable and makes you feel welcomed in her office. Her professionalism, focus on details, and willingness to listen made my visit awesome. I highly recommend her.”

How can I determine my candidacy for prepectoral breast reconstruction?

This procedure can be very helpful to those who have already undergone traditional subpectoral breast reconstruction but who are unhappy with their results and are experiencing issues with their implants, such as capsular contracture, tightness or implant animation.

Dr. Lee will meet with you for a confidential interview and examination at her Beverly Hills offices and at that time will be able to definitively assess your candidacy for the procedure.
