Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure that is performed to restore the breast to its original shape after being removed or distorted due to breast cancer treatment or other diseases.
Advancements in surgical techniques give plastic surgeons the necessary tools to create a breast that closely resembles and feels like a natural breast. With the rising awareness of these modern advances in reconstructive surgery, more breast cancer patients are opting for breast reconstruction.
There are many different techniques that are used for breast reconstruction, including tissue expanders, implants, and flaps.
Breast reconstruction can often be performed at the same time as a Mastectomy or can be postponed to a later time. The procedure has no known effect on the recurrence of cancer.
