Get your full femininity back!
Breast reconstruction is the surgery that rebuilds the breast after a mastectomy or breast removal. Mastectomy is usually done to cure breast cancer, or in some cases as a preventive measure for women at risk of developing a breast cancer.
Despite the increased ability to offer breast-conservation techniques to patients with breast cancer, there are a number of cases in which mastectomy remains the only option. Breast reconstruction is used through different methods to rebuild the missing breast.
A female breast is a powerful symbol of femininity, fertility and sexuality, this is therefore no surprise that breast reconstruction is of the highest importance.
Psychological studies have shown that patients undertaking breast removal suffer significant mastectomy associated disorders, such as depression, feelings of lack of femininity, negative body image and loss of sexual desire among others.
Breast Reconstruction is done to women that have lost all (mastectomy) or part (lumpectomy) of a breast. Double mastectomy is generally done as preventive measure. The breast reconstruction is done by a plastic surgeon. The surgeon will rebuild the breast as it was once, or bigger or smaller. The nipple and the darker area around it can also be rebuilt.
