In contrast to the results of years past, the art of breast reconstruction utilizes the best plastic surgery techniques for cosmetic breast enhancement in conjunction with the most advanced reconstructive plastic surgery modalities. Based on each woman’s desires, anatomy, and oncologic surgical requirements, it may be possible to achieve results that are natural, proportional, and truly aesthetically pleasing.
Breast reconstruction is an option for the majority of women undergoing unilateral mastectomy (one side) or bilateral mastectomy (both sides). Immediate breast reconstruction, which begins the reconstructive surgical process during the mastectomy procedure, is possible for most patients.
There have been significant advances in breast reconstruction techniques that have enabled women who choose to undergo mastectomy to feel balanced, comfortable, confident and attractive.
Breast reconstruction can be done at any time after undergoing a mastectomy. The procedure has no known effect on the recurrence of cancer and it does not appear to affect cancer surveillance.
