Breast Reconstruction

Women suffering from Breast Cancer, a thunderous term, are affected not only emotionally, but also is at a risk of leading a troublesome life already. Either a lumpectomy or mastectomy is the only treatment along with radiotherapy and chemotherapy to treat breast cancer. Breast reconstruction surgery is performed on those patients, who have undergone lumpectomy or mastectomy for treating the condition of cancer or undergone as a preventive breast cancer surgery. The surgery is performed immediately or sometime it is delayed right after the mastectomy surgery done with a well planned method by using the tissue taken from any of the ideal area of the patient’s body itself or prosthesis breast implants for substituting the removed breast.

The Procedure

The surgery of reconstruction of the breast is a matter of personalized choice as to whether you want the surgery immediately or after mastectomy or sometime later in life, perhaps when you are completely cured off from the surgery of mastectomy. Perfect Breast Clinic surgeon’s monitor your every aspect of emotional condition and health to ensure right procedure is performed at the right time. The whole surgery depends on the basis of a number of factors such as:

  • The size of the lump and the presence of cancerous tissue
  • The type and size of lumpectomy or mastectomy surgery
  • Whether you had a mastectomy or lumpectomy
  • Condition of a breast / breasts after the surgery
  • And of course, emotional condition

Based on the above factors, the incision type and placement of breast reconstruction surgery is then decided mutually between the among the patient and surgeon. Perfect Breast Clinic does not perform immediate reconstruction surgery after mastectomy procedures or breast cancer treatment, so we get have our patients from our associate institutions where patients seek this surgery from leading surgeons that we are associated with. The immediate reconstruction surgery is usually performed at the hospital when the patient is having the Lumpectomy or mastectomy or being treated for breast cancer. Our surgeon will go there and perform the surgery in collaboration with the rest of the surgeons.

The removal of breasts is completely substitute by the immediate reconstruction procedure which can be completed with proper time and funding. There are various procedures of performing this surgery:

  • Placing Breast Implants
  • Inflatable medical balloon
  • Fat Grafting

The medical balloon is placed in the mastectomy area just underneath its remaining tissue and a permanent breast implants are placed there or kept aside for placing later, and if not fat grafting technique is used.

Within a few weeks, or months or even years after the Lumpectomy or mastectomy the delayed breast reconstruction surgery is performed. This surgery has ability to make the scar tissue become malleable and soft with time. For the missing breasts and to lead a normal life women can usually substitute it with a supportive undergarment or the bra for their outgoing appearance. This surgery usually removes the natural areola and nipple, which are then artificially reconstructed when the implants have well settled in their position, since it may get disposition because of the implant changes taking place after the surgery.

In the case of unilateral reconstruction, at times, the other breast also needs contouring with a breast lift if its large or if you have chosen breast augmentation or implants for breast enlargements for asymmetric breasts.
