What is Breast Reconstruction?

The purpose of Breast Reconstruction is to restore the original shape and appearance of breast(s) after complete or partial breast removal in cancer patients or to address problems stemming from any number of causes, including congenital breast deformities.

Breast reconstruction makes many patients feel better about their appearance, however it is important to be realistic about the expected outcome. A reconstructed breast may not look exactly like your original breast nor will the sensation be similar. Hence the decision to have a breast reconstructed is a very personal one and you should fully explore your options so as to make the best choice for your body and your life.
