Breast reconstruction surgery
Breast reconstruction surgery helps restore a more natural, symmetrical appearance of a breast that has been removed by a mastectomy or altered by a lumpectomy as part of breast cancer treatment. A mastectomy or lumpectomy is typically performed if the patient has been diagnosed with breast cancer, has the BRCA gene, or has a strong family history of breast cancer and chooses to remove her breast(s) prophylactically. Reconstruction can happen simultaneously with one of these initial procedures, but many women choose to (or have to) wait months or even years before having breast reconstruction after cancer—and some end up deciding not to have reconstruction at all.
