At The Maercks Institute, we understand that losing your breasts to a mastectomy or trauma can be a serious blow to your femininity and self-image. Dr. Maercks offers breast reconstruction to patients who have already overcome the worst that life has to offer. This procedure has the ability to restore the shape, volume, and contour of the breast, which can be extremely rewarding to many women.

Will I need surgery for my other breast?
Many women ask this question if only one breast was removed. Dr. Maercks is an artist, and he will do everything possible to match your reconstructed breast with your natural breast. During your initial consultation, he will discuss your surgical options with you.
When is breast reconstruction done?
Breast reconstruction can be done during the mastectomy, or afterward. Some women begin discussing the reconstruction as soon as they’re diagnosed with cancer. Others may take more time to decide if they want breast reconstruction or not, and therefore undergo the procedure weeks or even years later.
