Richard Kline, MD
Dr. Richard Kline provides advanced free flap breast reconstruction procedures that use women’s own tissue to build soft, natural breasts after a mastectomy. Board certified in plastic surgery, Dr. Kline is the co-founder of the The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
Dr. Kline has been at the leading-edge of breast reconstruction throughout his career, performing the first DIEP flap reconstruction in the Southeast. The pioneering surgeon now offers women the possibility of restoring sensation after a mastectomy with Resensation®. The breakthrough technique utilizes allograft nerve tissue to connect nerves in the chest and potentially return sensation over time.
