Breast Reconstruction with Breast Implants

Breast reconstruction London

A breast implant can be employed either as an addition or as an alternative to flap reconstruction techniques. Reconstruction with breast implants involves restoring the form of the breast by inserting a breast prosthesis made of synthetic material into the mastectomy site. Implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They have an outer shell made from silicone that is filled with either saline or silicone gel. At your consultation, your surgeon will explain the different types of implants available and most suited to your needs.

Implant reconstruction can be performed in one of two ways: the placement of the implant under the remaining skin in the breast area after mastectomy (Direct-To-Implant Reconstruction), or the placement of the implant after tissue expansion to form a breast pocket (Two-Stage Reconstruction).
