What is
Breast Reconstruction Surgery?

Breast Reconstruction is a surgical procedure that, as the name implies, rebuilds the natural shape and appearance of the breast, usually after a mastectomy, a consequence of breast cancer. Mastectomy results often give an appearance that discourages patients and that is why this surgery is recommended.

Usually after some interventions, the shape and appearance of the breast affected by the cancer is largely recovered. There are several methods of reconstruction depending on the condition of the patient after the cancer treatment.

it is well advised to attend to a medical consultation with a plastic surgeon before the mastectomy takes place, this allows the surgeon to plan carefully the reconstruction and choose the optimal surgical technique. Sometimes breast reconstruction can begin in the same surgical time of the mastectomy.

The technique to be implemented will depend on each patient surgical plan.

In some patients, an expander can be used, thus avoiding the second step.

The procedure can use tissue from your abdomen, TRAM flap or the back dorsal muscle flap. There is a final stage where a nipple is created in the reconstructed breast, also skin grafts are used to create the areola. In some cases, the other breast is molded so that both have the same appearance.
