Breast Reconstruction Surgery India
Breast reconstruction surgery is a type of surgery for women who have had all or part of a breast removed. The surgery rebuilds the breast mound to match the size and shape of the other breast. The nipple and the darker area around the nipple (areola) can also be added.
Most women who have had a breast removed (mastectomy) are able to have breast reconstruction surgery. Women who have had only the part of the breast around the cancer removed (lumpectomy or breast-conserving surgery) might not need reconstruction, but sometimes they do. Breast reconstruction surgery is done by a plastic surgeon.
Breast Reconstruction surgery is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other condition. Breast reconstruction surgery is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy. The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence and quality of life.
There are two main techniques for reconstructing your breast:
Implant reconstruction: Inserting an implant that's filled with salt water (saline), silicone gel, or a combination of the two.
Autologous or "flap" reconstruction: Using tissue transplanted from another part of your body (such as your belly, thigh, or back). Autologous breast reconstruction also may include an implant.
You also can choose whether or not to reconstruct your nipple. (In some cases, nipple-sparing mastectomy is possible, which means that your own nipple and the surrounding breast skin are preserved.)
