Breast reconstruction enables you to restore your natural breast shape and size after undergoing a mastectomy or lumpectomy, and can also help you enjoy enhanced symmetry.
Reconstruction After Mastectomy
In many cases, breast reconstruction can be performed at the same time as your mastectomy. This can be a good time for breast reconstruction surgery, as the breast tissues are typically unharmed by radiation therapy or scarring. It will also save you from having to deal with more than just a single recovery period.
Your overall health will be taken into consideration before the decision is made to perform both mastectomy and breast reconstruction at the same time. In most cases, it is best to know that the patient’s cancer, as far as can be determined, has been eliminated by mastectomy. During your consultation, you’ll work with a highly experienced member of our surgical team to decide on the approach that is best for you, your lifestyle, and your individual goals.
