Breast reconstruction gives women who have undergone mastectomy surgery the opportunity to reclaim their figure once again. A woman’s bust may be part of what makes her feel feminine, and changes to it may be frustrating. You may feel like you are no longer living with a body that truly feels like your own. Breast reconstruction can give her a path back to confidence.
What Happens During Breast Reconstruction?
You and our plastic surgeon will discuss your options for breast reconstruction. You could choose flap reconstruction, also referred to as autologous reconstruction. Tissue is removed from another part of your body, such as your back, your thigh, or your abdomen. It is then molded into the shape of breasts.
Surgery with implants is another option. Implants may be used to restore lost volume or shape to the breasts. Implants may even be an option if only one breast needs to be reconstructed.
Why Should You Think About Breast Reconstruction?
Every woman is unique. Some patients prefer to go without breast reconstruction and accept their bodies the way they are. Breast reconstruction will help you to feel like yourself again after your body has gone through a major change. You can feel comfortable about yourself whether you are on your own, with your partner, or in public. You can choose a completely natural approach for reconstruction, using tissues from your own body to rebuild what you have lost. Breast reconstruction can help you to overcome the potential discomfort of losing your breasts, allowing you to move forward with your recovery.
