Breast reconstruction uses several plastic surgery techniques in order to restore the breast to a near normal shape, appearance, and size following mastectomy.
Breast reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other condition. The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence and quality of life.
If only one breast is affected, it alone may be reconstructed. In such cases, a breast lift, breast reduction, or breast augmentation may be suggested to ensure the opposite breast is symmetric in size and position.
