Constance M Chen MD MPH - Perforator Flap Breast Reconstruction - Home - New York, NY
 -
Welcome.
We are a boutique surgical practice focusing on the most innovative techniques in restorative breast surgery. The diagnosis of breast cancer can be overwhelming and devastating. We understand that many women may feel anxious and uncertain about what their options are after mastectomy or lumpectomy. Our goal is to help you make intelligent, educated choices that will restore you to health. While we offer all types of options to restore your body to a natural and comfortable shape, we specialize in the most advanced procedures with an emphasis on perforator flap breast reconstruction, limited-scar breast reduction, and autologous lymph node transfer.
We understand that each woman has her own unique concerns and treatment preferences when making important decisions about her medical and surgical care. This is why we treat each patient with highly individualized attention. We will hold your hand every step of the way, as it is our philosophy to make sure that you have a safe and secure surgical experience to allow you to live a long and fulfilling life after cancer.
