Breast Reconstruction

Service Description

Breast reconstruction includes a variety of procedures performed to restore the form and shape of the breast, following mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery. Factors such as individual anatomy, aesthetic goals and the need for any postsurgical chemotherapy or radiation will determine your options. Discussing your cancer surgery with a plastic surgeon before undergoing mastectomy is crucial, because the proposed cancer removal surgery may significantly affect the choices and the results of any type of breast reconstruction.

How is a breast reconstruction procedure performed?

The three basic options for breast reconstruction:

  • Using breast implants (saline or silicone).
  • Reconstructing the breast using your own skin, fat and muscle.
  • A combination of these methods.

Most breast reconstruction methods involve several steps. The majority of breast reconstruction procedures are done as outpatient surgery; however, some may require a hospital stay for the initial procedure (especially if it is done in conjunction with the initial mastectomy). Implant or expander insertion may not require extra hospital time if it can be done at the time of the mastectomy. Your plastic surgeon will help you weigh the pros and cons and select the method to benefit you the most.

When to Consider Breast Reconstruction

  • If you think reconstruction will give you a sense of psychological well being or a feeling of “wholeness”
  • To help restore your feelings of femininity and confidence in your appearance
  • To improve symmetry if only one of your breasts is affected
  • To allow you to wear low-cut necklines and normal swimwear

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
