Breast reconstruction is a cosmetic procedure that has been designed to help women restore the beauty that nature bestows upon them but cancer takes away. A latest research has estimated that one in every eight women develops breast cancer at some stage during her lifetime and will need to get at least a portion of her breast tissues to be removed to get rid of the cancerous breast tissues.
If you have also undergone lumpectomy or mastectomy to remove early stage cancer, undergo breast reconstruction and feel whole again. The good news is that it is also covered by the health insurance. Whether you undergo lumpectomy with or without radiation, chances are high that you will be left with a dent, bulge or any other distortion in the breast shape. In some cases the sufferer may have one breast smaller than the other or one may be positioned higher than the other.
Since there are so many variables involved, there is no standard approach to reconstruct a cancer affected breast after mastectomy. The two most commonly used breast reconstruction techniques include implants placement and flap technique. The former involves surgical placement of breast implants between the breast tissues to help regain the lost volume. The latter, on the other hand, refers to a breast reconstruction technique in which tissues from the woman’s own body, mostly from her thighs or buttocks, are used to recreate a natural-looking warm, soft bosom.
You can undergo breast reconstruction at the same time as lumpectomy or can delay it for several months after mastectomy. Undergoing reconstruction immediately after cancer treatment has many advantages. Immediate reconstruction will enable you to recover from lumpectomy without grieving the loss of breasts or flat chest. You will also be able to keep your natural breast skin. This will also result in less scarring, as your surgeon will not have to make incisions on the breasts twice.
