The Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today. New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast.
Before & After GalleryModel
Every woman has her own reasons for having breast reconstruction surgery, though the ultimate goal is the same: to restore a normal appearance to the chest after mastectomy. The benefits of breast reconstruction are numerous, though here are the most common we hear from our patients:
- A renewed feeling of normalcy after the turmoil of breast cancer treatment and mastectomy.
- Restored feelings of femininity and attractiveness.
- No more uncomfortable prosthetics or bras.
- Clothing fits better and more comfortably.
Frequently, reconstruction is possible immediately following breast removal (mastectomy), so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all. But, bear in mind, post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is not a simple procedure. There are often many options to consider as you and the surgeons explore what’s best for you.
