"Dr. Lerman Was Amazing" Patient Testimonial
Breast Reconstruction Dr. Lerman's Specialty
Dr. Lerman is proud to specialize in reconstructive breast surgery because he knows what a profound difference it can make in a patient's life. After a mastectomy or other trauma to the breast, reconstructive surgery performed by an expert like Dr. Lerman can restore a woman's natural form, renew her confidence, and sometimes leave her even happier with her appearance than she was before.
At his Manhattan practice, Dr. Lerman is able to take multiple approaches to reconstructive breast surgery. He places a high value on patient education and encourages you to review the extensive resources available on this site. Some of the topics related to breast reconstruction that patients most often ask about include:
Autologous Breast Reconstruction
In autologous breast reconstruction surgery, Dr. Lerman uses a woman's natural tissue to restore her breast. Because of his specialized training in microvascular surgery, Dr. Lerman is able to use the state-of-the-art DIEP flap technique.
Corrective Breast Reconstruction
The results of surgery to reconstruct the breasts can change over time. Dr. Lerman performs corrective operations on previously reconstructed breasts (both autologous and implant-based) to renew a woman's natural form.
Restoring Sensation with Nerve Grafting
Traditionally, reconstructive breast surgery was not able to restore sensation to the nipple after a mastectomy. However, thanks to modern advances in plastic surgery, Dr. Lerman is able to reconnect nerves when performing autologous procedures to restore sensation.
"I Feel Lucky and Blessed to Call Him My Doctor"
Had a double mastectomy with reconstruction on January 3, 2018. Dr Lerman did an amazing job. After all the healing has been completed, I look even better than I did before surgery. My breasts look and feel perfectly natural. My scars are minimal. Found Dr. Lerman to be caring, warm and very professional. You can't miss having Dr. Lerman operate on you. He is awesome.
Dr. Oren Lerman's expertise and skill are of the absolute highest caliber. He masterfully navigated my demanding journey with breast reconstruction following my cancer diagnosis and double mastectomy. As my body persisted in presenting formidable challenges, Dr. Lerman never wavered in his thoughtful and methodical decisions and treatments. His empathy and humanity gave me reassurance and hope throughout the five surgeries he performed on me. Dr. Lerman is the ideal doctor. I feel lucky and blessed to call him my doctor.
