If you have undergone a mastectomy, you are likely a candidate for surgical breast reconstruction. The type of surgical breast reconstruction depends on the patient’s body type, the existing tissue they have on the breast and the rest of the body, and the type of treatment used during breast cancer.
A number of factors are taken into consideration when choosing which procedure to undergo, including the type of mastectomy, patient’s body type, and type of cancer treatment. Surgical breast reconstruction falls into two categories: implant-based reconstruction or flap reconstruction. Flap reconstruction uses a patient’s own skin and tissue from another part of the body to create a new breast.
