Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Poulter Breast ReconstructionDr. Poulter believes that one of the most rewarding aspects of his work is helping his patients to regain confidence and self-esteem. Helping women who have lost one or both breasts to cancer is particularly rewarding, as breast reconstruction in Bloomington and Peoria, Illinois often helps these women to feel whole again and is an important part of their recovery process.

In recent years, there have been significant advances in breast reconstruction, and patients now have many options. In many cases, reconstruction can be performed at the time of mastectomy, limiting the need for an additional surgery with increased discomfort and more down time. Dr. Poulter specializes in tissue expansion and implant reconstruction to create a natural looking breast. Dr. Poulter prefers to use Allergan’s Natrelle® 410 shaped silicone implants for breast reconstruction. These anatomically shaped silicone gel implants, which were approved by the FDA in 2013, create a beautiful, natural-looking appearance that mimics the curvature of real breast tissue. To learn more about the implant options Dr. Poulter offers, visit the Breast Augmentation page.
