TYPES OF BREAST SURGERY AT BREAST CARE SPECIALISTS OF CAROLINA
Dr. Thomas Williams works with the area’s leading plastic surgeons to plan formal breast reconstruction, using either a patient’s natural tissues, saline or silicone implants, or a combination of both. During lumpectomy surgery, Dr. Thomas Williams uses an implantable device called a Biozorb that is an adjunct to oncoplastic surgery in that it helps to fill the space from which the tumor was removed. This device marker allows tissue ingrowth and is effectively degraded in about 24 months time. This framework is a method in which Dr. Thomas Williams often utilizes during the hidden scar/oncoplastic technique to ensure that each patient has a very pleasing cosmetic outcome following surgery.
