Providing the Best in Natural Breast Reconstruction to Orlando & nearby areas of Florida

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Daryl Wier to the medical staff at the Aesthetic Surgery Center of Winter Park. Dr .Wier is one of Orlando’s most highly respected general surgeons, with more than 30 years of experience in breast surgery. The addition of Dr. Wier to the medical staff will effectively allow Dr. Weir to participate with our team at the Breast Center at the Bougainvillea Clinique, to expand and improve our services to our breast cancer patients.

We can provide patients with immediate breast reconstruction using autologous fat grafting (AFT) at the time of their mastectomy procedure, in the privacy and comfort of the same outpatient facility. This is particularly valuable for patients who choose prophylactic mastectomy procedures due to a strong family history of breast cancer and/or a BRCA positive condition. 

It is now quite feasible to perform the combined procedures of mastectomy and initiation of reconstruction with autologous fat grafting, as an outpatient procedure without the need for hospitalization.

Initiating autologous fat grafting at the time of the mastectomy has numerous advantages; the most obvious of which is that the patient can leave the facility with a small breast mound, and some fullness particularly superiorly and towards the middle of the breast. This is a great advantage when post-mastectomy patients try to wear normal clothing, to maintain the appearance of a normal breast. Performing the AFT at the time of the mastectomy also prevents contracture of the mastectomy scars and avoids a severe chest deformity. In effect, the patient has a small breast immediately.

By minimizing the deformity and preventing scar contracture, we have shown, that subsequent grafting procedures to complete the reconstruction are greatly simplified, and the mastectomy scars heal far more favorably. This approach is suitable for most types of mastectomy, including nipple sparing mastectomy procedures.

We welcome Dr. Wier to our team, as we continue to expand our services to patients, in order to make the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer as easy and comfortable  as possible. Dr. Wier will also provide other general surgery outpatient procedures at our facility. Dr. Weir maintains a privaye practice in Orlando.
