In October 2011, our team of highly trained plastic surgeons introduced The Chicago Breast Symposium. This multidisciplinary, continuing education event was designed to advance the study of breast care. Hundreds of medical educators, community leaders and public advocates came together in Chicago to share their knowledge and to learn.
At Loren S. Schechter, M.D. Plastic Surgery, this leadership role is what sets us apart. Our plastic surgeons in Chicago combine exceptional artistic and surgical skill, specialized training in microsurgical techniques, and an in-depth understanding of the latest advancements in plastic surgery. Breast augmentation (implant), breast lift (mastopexy) and breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) are among the cosmetic procedures we perform at some of the Chicago area’s most respected medical centers. In addition, our plastic surgeons are also recognized for their results in breast reconstruction. The plastic surgeons at Loren S. Schechter, M.D. Plastic Surgery are trained in the most advanced microsurgical procedures such as the DIEP flap, SIEA flap, TRAM flap, TUG/VUG flap, and SGAP flap. In a multi-disciplinary setting, our surgeons also perform reconstruction following nipple-sparing mastectomy, oncoplastic breast conservation, and fat grafting following mastectomy.
In choosing your plastic surgeon, we encourage you to ask questions, check the surgeon’s credentials, and ask to speak with past and current patients.
