life-changing choices

Losing one or both breasts can be overwhelming—it’s why many women choose reconstructive surgery. But one thing you may not be aware of is that after reconstruction, women can experience anywhere from partial to complete numbness in their chest.

With Resensation you have the opportunity to not only look—but potentially feel—more like yourself again. This surgical technique has the potential to restore sensation to your breast as part of a natural tissue breast reconstruction.

In my practice, I let women know that they are not stuck with numb breasts, even if they’ve previously had implant-based breast reconstruction or no reconstruction at all.

Resensation surgeon

I want to offer women the chance to not just have reconstructed breasts, but to look in the mirror and feel beautiful. I want them to feel confident and to not be constantly reminded of breast cancer.

Jules Walters III, MD

By being able to offer the potential of sensation we can really take breast reconstruction to the next level. Sensation was the part that was missing.
