Breast Reconstruction: Yes or No?
Breast reconstruction is a procedure that is carried out to restore breast shape and replace breast tissue that is lost during a mastectomy or lumpectomy. The goal is to create breasts that look symmetrical, close to the original appearance and shape, and as natural as possible.
Whether or not a breast reconstruction is performed depends on several factors: your personal decision, your physical condition and medical requirements. It is important that you understand every option available for breast reconstruction. Having the right information as a starting point for a full and frank discussion with your surgeon can help you in the journey to reconstruction.
