Breast Reconstruction Surgery: What Are the Options?

What Is Breast Reconstruction Surgery?

Breast reconstruction surgery is a procedure to reshape the breasts after a lumpectomy or mastectomy, which is used for treating breast cancer. Not everyone needs to go through this surgery. However, it is important to get informed about the possible options. There are a few forms of breast reconstruction, which can be determined by certain factors. Breast reconstruction surgery can be either immediate, meaning at the time of a lumpectomy or mastectomy, or delayed, meaning after recovery from a lumpectomy or mastectomy. [1]
