Breast reconstruction usually involves multiple procedures performed in several different stages. This series of procedures can begin at the time of mastectomy or they may delayed until a later date.
Breast reconstruction generally falls into two different categories: you have a flap or implant-based reconstruction. Flap reconstruction usually uses the patient’s own tissue which is relocated from another part of their body to create a new breast. Implant reconstruction uses artificial breast implants to help create a new breast therefore, restoring the breast to it’s pre-surgery condition as much as possible.
