WHAT IS BREAST RECONSTRUCTION?
Breast reconstruction is a spectrum of surgeries that restores and rebuilds the breast after the breast is removed (fully or partially). The most common reason is after cancer surgery. Other conditions which may require breast reconstruction includes congenital absence of breast tissues or after trauma or infection.
The options for reconstructing the breast are broadly divided into:
- Using our own body tissues (autologous reconstruction)
- Using breast implants (implant reconstruction)
Our plastic surgeon will assess your suitability and explain the differences in more detail during the consultation.
