Oscar Ochoa, MD, FACS
Dr. Oscar Ochoa is a leading-edge plastic and reconstructive surgeon offering the most advanced techniques in breast reconstruction at PRMA Plastic Surgery in San Antonio, Texas. Board certified in general surgery and plastic surgery, Dr. Ochoa has an extensive background in academics and medical research where he learned innovative breast reconstruction techniques.
He has special expertise in free flap (autologous) breast reconstruction, which uses a woman’s own body tissue to build new breasts after a mastectomy. With microsurgery, Dr. Ochoa can take tissue from another part of the body and connect it to the chest to form new breasts. At the same time, Dr. Ochoa uses the Resensation® technique to reconnect the nerves in the chest and potentially restore nerve function. By offering the breakthrough surgical technique, Dr. Ochoa gives mastectomy patients the possibility of renewed sensation over time.
