Benrus Surgical is pleased to announce the release of a new video to educate the public on Aesthetic Flat Closure, also known as post-mastectomy chest wall reconstruction. The 1-minute 46-second video, now available on youtube, features a brief yet insightful talk by top surgeon Dr. Laurel Yeager MD, FACS, who addresses frequently asked questions about the surgical procedure.
The video featured answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Aesthetic Flat Closure. It provides a brief but beneficial overview of the topic. According to Dr. Yeager, “Aesthetic Flat Closure is a surgery performed to reshape or rebuild the chest after one or both breasts are removed with the goal of creating a smooth flat chest wall contour.” In the video, the doctor also answers questions such as, “Why would someone choose an Aesthetic Flat closure?” Who does the Anesthetic flat closure? Is it preferable to go flat after a mastectomy? Does insurance pay for Aesthetic Flat Closure?
