About Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a procedure to rebuild a breast which has been completely or partly removed. The most common reason for undergoing breast reconstruction surgery is for patients who have had breast cancer surgery (mastectomy or lumpectomy). In the US, breast cancer affects around 1 in 8 women. The surgery is often performed at the same time as a mastectomy, however some patients may choose to wait a while before undergoing a breast reconstruction. Patients who are undergoing radiation therapy are advised to undergo breast reconstruction in stages, as they cannot undergo reconstruction whilst receiving radiation therapy, as this could damage the new breast.

There breast can be reconstructed either with breast implants or with flaps. Implants are made of silicon or saline and are an inserted under the chest muscle. Flaps are made up of tissue which is taken from another area of the body such as the buttocks or thighs, and are connected to the blood vessels on the chest. With a flap procedure, the shape and size of the breast will change in the first few months and once it has formed it's shape, nipple reconstruction may then be performed. Nipple reconstruction involves taking part of the nipple from the other breast and filling in the color by tattooing it to the nipple. As there are a number of different surgical options for patients undergoing breast reconstruction, the time needed for the treatments vary considerably.
