You may have had a mastectomy because you were diagnosed with breast cancer or at high risk for developing it in the future. If this is the case, your doctor may have told you about the option of rebuilding your breast or breasts. This is called reconstruction.
Breast reconstruction typically takes place soon after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction surgery creates a breast shape using an artificial implant, a flap of tissue that is taken from another place in your body.
We understand that losing a breast can leave you feeling anxious, uncertain, and sad. Maybe you used to feel confident without your clothes, and now you may feel self-conscious. We encourage you to think about what is best for you, what will make you feel the best, and what will ultimately make you the happiest.
Our entire staff is always here to answer any questions about the surgery or the recovery process. We understand that getting breast reconstruction surgery can be a big step, and we want to be there to support you every step of the way. Our friendly and educated surgeons will make sure to listen to your goals prior to surgery and work with you to ensure that they are achieved.
