For Whom is Breast Reconstruction Suitable?

Breast reconstruction is suitable for women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy due to breast cancer, or for those who have a congenital breast deformity. It is important that women are in good general health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery.

When is Breast Reconstruction Not Suitable?

Breast reconstruction may not be suitable for women who have other health conditions that could impact the surgery or recovery process. Women who are currently undergoing radiation therapy or chemotherapy may need to delay reconstruction until after their treatment is complete. Additionally, women who smoke may be at a higher risk for complications and may need to quit smoking before undergoing surgery.

What Techniques are Used in Breast Reconstruction?

There are several techniques used in breast reconstruction, including implant-based reconstruction and autologous reconstruction using the patient's own tissue. The specific technique used will depend on the patient's unique needs and preferences, as well as the surgeon's recommendation.

Preparation for Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Before undergoing breast reconstruction surgery, patients will need to undergo a medical evaluation and discuss any medications or supplements they are taking with their surgeon. They may also need to stop smoking and avoid certain medications in the weeks leading up to surgery.

Risks of Breast Reconstruction Surgery

As with any surgery, there are risks associated with breast reconstruction, including bleeding, infection, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Other potential risks include implant rupture, capsular contracture, and changes in breast or nipple sensation.


Procedure for Breast Reconstruction Surgery

The specific procedure for breast reconstruction will depend on the technique used. In general, the surgery involves creating a new breast mound and, in some cases, reconstructing the nipple and areola. The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require multiple procedures to achieve the desired results.

Healing Process Post OP

After breast reconstruction surgery, patients will need to follow their surgeon's instructions for post-operative care, which may include taking medications, wearing compression garments, and avoiding certain activities. Recovery time will depend on the specific procedure used, but most patients are able to resume normal activities within 4-6 weeks. It is important for patients to attend follow-up appointments with their surgeon to monitor their progress and address any concerns.
