Breast reconstruction is a key tenet of plastic surgery. Our surgeons have years of experience performing restorative procedures on women who have lost their breasts to cancer. This can often be performed at the same time as the mastectomy, beginning the process of healing. Depending on health conditions, however, a mastectomy patient may have to wait before undergoing breast reconstruction surgery. Whether Breast Reconstruction is done immediately or on a delayed basis, this surgery holds much promise of recreating a natural looking breast again. The best option for a patient is a complex decision, made upon discussions with a patient’s oncologists, breast surgeon, and reconstructive surgeon.
