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.

Due to COVID-19, MPRSD and the Med Spa will be closed indefinitely beginning March 30th, 2020. Both Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe will only be seeing post-operative patients, patients with pressing issues, and will continue working hospital consults and ER coverage. However, during this time we will not be seeing new elective patients. Staff will reach out to cancel appointments and notify patients, and will be reaching out to reschedule when we are back in the office.
We always do our best to stay available to our patients. If the normal communication systems break down during this crisis, Dr. Park should be reachable at email@example.com and Dr. Rebowe at firstname.lastname@example.org. Immediate availability cannot be assumed during these unpredictable times so do not email with urgent issues. Urgent issues need direct communication with a provider either through the office or if necessary, your nearest emergency room.
