In brief: Plastic Surgeon

A board certified plastic surgeon with experience in microsurgery is advantageous as they can offer the most advanced forms of reconstruction using your own tissues- giving natural reconstruction while improving contour of the donor site (usually abdomen).
Microsurgery (diep flaps) can also save your abdominal muscles vas opposed to the traditional tram flap.

Breast reconstruction is performed by plastic surgeons.
If you are considering breast reconstruction surgery please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, preferably one who performs a lot of breast reconstruction and is therefore very experienced in these procedures.

In brief: Breast Cancer

For breast reconstruction you would prefer to hear of all available options which include: immediate reconstruction with fat grafting to pectoral is and subsequent fat grating with the use of brava, single or two stage implant reconstruction and then flap reconstruction like the diep flap.
You of course can have combinations of any of these procedures depending on your needs. Good luck!
