Going through a lumpectomy or mastectomy is no easy task physically, mentally or emotionally. You may have considered surgery to rebuild the shape of your breasts, but have not considered what a procedure like this entails. This is understandable, and whether you’ve thought about it or not, breast reconstruction surgery could be a way to restore lost confidence and vitality.
The surgeons at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery are here to present options, so that you can make an informed decision when you’re ready.
Reconstruction surgery is not for everyone and may not be needed if only a few parts of your breast tissue have been removed. However, the choice to pursue surgery is a personal one, and being the right candidate varies from person to person.
An important thing to remember about reconstructive surgery is that more than one operation may be needed to deliver the best result. Furthermore, the procedure restores the shape, not necessarily the look or feel of a natural breast. Additional measures, like 3D nipple tattooing or nipple grafts, may be needed to make the breast look as natural as possible.
As mentioned in the “Breast Reconstruction Surgery After Cancer” blog post, there are three different kinds of reconstruction methods. Every situation is unique, so if you have questions about a specific surgery type, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons.
