What is a Breast Reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction is a procedure that is performed after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. These are surgeries that remove part or all of the breast tissue in an attempt to eliminate cancer from the body. It is not uncommon for breast cancer to be found in only one breast, so these kind of procedures can leave a woman feeling less than whole. A breast reconstruction can restore the size and shape of the breasts, and can help patients feel like themselves again.
What Can I Expect from a Breast Reconstruction Procedure?
There are two options for breast reconstruction. Patients can either use implants or tissue from another part of the body to reconstruct the breasts. Tissue is usually transplanted from the belly or thighs, and can provide excellent results, but requires a more advanced procedure. Implants are a much simpler process, and are inserted just like a traditional breast augmentation. Both methods can provide the patient with breasts that both look and feel like their normal breasts. However, it is important to note that breast reconstruction cannot restore sensation.
How is Recovery from a Breast Reconstruction?
Recovery from breast reconstruction will depend on the method used. If implants were used for reconstruction, patients can expect a recovery quite similar to a traditional breast augmentation. If reconstruction was performed using other tissue in the body, the patient may have a longer recovery. In either case, it is common to experience bruising and soreness for a few days after treatment. We recommend that patients get as much rest as possible following their procedure, and keep any physical activity to a minimum. This ensures that the body is able to recover properly.
