The Park Clinic is planning to be open on Friday, September 18th. We currently do not have power and are unable to confirm appointments. Please be advised there will be no No-Show penalty for patients unable to make it to their appointment. We will be available for all patients who need us. If you had an appointment scheduled with us this week and it was cancelled due to Hurricane Sally, we will be in contact with you as soon as we can. It may be early next week, but we will get those appointments rescheduled. We hope that all of our patients stayed safe during the storm. Should you have an emergency please dial 911.

Chest Reconstruction Mobile

Chest Reconstruction Mobile

Chest wall deformities, such as pectus excavatum where there is depression of the sternum in the middle of the chest, can be treated with major bone remodeling surgery if there is functional impairment or a masking operation in milder cases. These implants can also be used for cosmetic augmentation of the pectoral area of the chest wall. In both types of patients, a solid silicone chest wall implant is placed under the pectoralis major muscle in an outpatient procedure, usually under local anesthesia with light sedation. The incision for chest wall deformities is usually in the upper mid-abdomen or beneath the folds of the breasts. A “pec implant” is usually placed through the armpit to avoid scars on the chest. Swelling is significant for several weeks. Activity can be resumed at 1 week and gradually increased over 6 weeks.
