About Breast Reconstruction

About Breast Reconstruction

In order to treat or prevent breast cancer, you may undergo a procedure that removes some or all of your breast tissue known as a mastectomy. The fight against breast cancer can be emotionally and physically stressful from the start, but after a mastectomy, some women may face an additional toll regarding their self-esteem, sex drive, and identity. In order to address these problems, you may elect to have breast reconstruction surgery.

Breast reconstruction uses advanced surgical procedures to restore the breasts. You may elect for reconstruction after a mastectomy or you may schedule to have while scheduling your mastectomy.
