What is ReSensation?

ReSensation is a new method designed to restore sensation after a mastectomy.

ReSensation makes it possible to connect the nerves in your newly restored breast, and is performed at the same time as your free flap (or autologous) reconstruction surgery.

The goal of free flap reconstruction surgery is to provide size, shape, symmetry, and softness to the newly restored breast, using your own tissue. This tissue is typically taken from your abdomen.

ReSensation is an advancement in reconstruction surgery, with the goal of restoring more than just natural appearance.

Now with ReSensation there is also a possibility of restoring sensation to your breast.

For women undergoing breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, the ReSensation surgical technique reconnects nerves in the breast with allograft nerve tissue enabling the restoration of sensation.
