Reconstruction Following Breast Removal

One of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today is reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other disease. With new medical techniques and devices, surgeons are able to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast. Frequently, reconstruction is possible immediately following breast removal (mastectomy), so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all.

But bear in mind, post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is not a simple procedure. There are often many options to consider as you and Dr. Lesavoy explore what’s best for you.

This information will give you a basic understanding of the breast reconstruction procedure – when it’s appropriate, how it’s done, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. Please be sure to ask Dr. Lesavoy if there is anything you don’t understand about the breast reconstruction procedure.
