Breast Reconstruction

  • Cancer mastectomy removes the female breast

  • Women should be given options for reconstruction

  • Dr Chong performs his own immediate breast reconstructions without a plastic surgeon

Chilton is one of the few breast cancer surgeons in Victoria who is formally trained to perform his own implant-based breast reconstructions without the need for a plastic surgeon during their mastectomy. This means scheduling surgery is easier and patients deal with just one surgeon.

Chilton will guide you whether you are suitable for nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate reconstruction as well as decide on reconstructions that enable women to be bigger, smaller or the same size as they already are.


As finishing touches Chilton also performs:

  • Nipple reconstruction (if you have lost the nipple from mastectomy)

  • Symmetrising surgery (making the non-cancer breast bigger or smaller to match the operated side)

  • Lipofilling to correct contour deformities (injecting patient’s own fat from liposuction)
