After going through the removal of all breast tissue (mastectomy) following breast cancer, women end up with a plain torso. The definition of health is not limited to the absence of physical disease, but also to the social and mental well-being of an individual.
Our plastic surgeon is highly trained in breast reconstruction procedures offering relief and a return to normal after painful and tiring journeys such as cancer fights.
Breast reconstruction aims to provide a satisfactory cosmetic result.
DID YOU KNOW?
During your first consultation, your surgeon will inform you of the different possibilities to reconstruct the breast and will guide through the appropriate surgery adapted to your case.
This tailor-made approach, whether by prosthesis or autologous tissue (flap), will allow you to obtain your previous feminine allure with a minimum of scaring.
To achieve an optimal breast reconstruction’s final result, two to three procedures may be necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still benefit from breast reconstruction after radiotherapy?
Upon your consultation, your surgeon will advise you about the appropriate technique for reconstruction according to your radiotherapy or chemotherapy previous/future treatment.
Is there an ideal time for breast reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction can be done during a same procedure after mastectomy; however, it can also be done years later if desired (delayed reconstruction).
