Jules Walters, III, MD

Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Jules Walters specializes in breast reconstruction and cosmetic surgery of the face, breast and body. Dr. Walters approaches every procedure with an aesthetic sense and believes that dedication to detail is of the utmost importance.

With expertise in microsurgery, Dr. Walters offers women the option to have autologous, or free flap, breast reconstruction, which uses a woman’s own tissue taken from the abdomen or other area of the body to recreate breasts after mastectomy. Dr. Walters is one of a select number of U.S. plastic surgeons performing breast neurotization with ReSensationSM, an advanced surgical technique that has the potential to restore breast sensation in reconstructed breasts.

I want to offer women the chance to not just have reconstructed breasts, but to be able 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

ReSensation is the next frontier in breast reconstruction. I hope that providing information about this technique that could potentially restore sensation will reduce the fear and anxiety that patients face.
