Breast Reconstruction is a surgical procedure used to reconstruct the breast mound after a mastectomy. There are a variety of surgical techniques for breast reconstruction. Some Breast Reconstruction procedures include TRAM Flap, Tissue Expander with implant, and Latissimus Muscle Flap.
Breast reconstruction is a rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost her breast to cancer. It is important that you feel emotionally ready to undergo reconstruction and to accept the results. The creation of a new breast can help you feel better about yourself in clothing, however, the reconstructed breast will never feel or look like your original breast.
