General Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Hani Sbitany is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery. He performs post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, including microsurgical free tissue transfer, implant-based techniques, and fat grafting. He is trained in reconstructive microsurgery, and performs the most advanced procedures for restoring form and function after breast cancer surgery. In addition, he performs surgical reconstruction for defects of the head and neck, torso, arms and legs. Other areas of expertise include reconstruction after skin cancer removal, and general plastic and reconstructive surgery. In cosmetic surgery, Dr. Sbitany's focus is surgical rejuvenation of the face, breasts and torso.
Dr. Sbitany's research focuses on optimizing outcomes and safety of techniques for fat transfer to the breast, following mastectomy or breast conservation treatment for breast cancer.
