Breast Reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other disease. Reconstruction of a breast that has been partially or completely removed is possible through a combination of plastic surgery techniques that not only creates a new breast but also can dramatically improve a woman’s self-image, self-confidence and quality of life.
The results of breast reconstruction can be relatively natural in appearance and feel, however, a reconstructed breast will never look or feel exactly the same as the breast that was removed.
Breast Reconstruction typically involves several procedures performed in multiple stages. During your consultation, your physician will discuss all of your options in detail helping you make decisions that are right for your body and any post op treatments that may be needed, such as radiation.
