Breast Reconstructions Overview
Breast reconstruction, also known as breast reconstruction after mastectomy, is a procedure to restore or replace damaged or removed breast tissue. This procedure rejuvenates the female profile after trauma such as breast cancer, trauma, birth defects or disease. There are many different types and options for breast reconstruction procedures, and the skill of your plastic surgeon plays a big role in the final result. Breast reconstruction is truly an art and science combined.
Women who choose to have a breast reconstruction procedure have several options to achieve their goals. Surgery can be done immediately at the time of mastectomy or afterwards, when the mastectomy incisions have healed. Delaying reconstruction is a common option women chose, and delays are often common for months if not years.
