What Is Breast Reconstruction?

Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure aimed at restoring the shape, size, and appearance of the breast following a mastectomy or lumpectomy, typically performed as part of breast cancer treatment. This transformative procedure utilizes various surgical techniques to recreate a breast mound, taking into account the patient's anatomy, preferences, and medical history. Breast reconstruction methods may include the following:

  • Using implants.
  • Transferring tissue from another part of the body (flap reconstruction).
  • Or a combination of both.

The goal is to achieve natural-looking results that restore physical symmetry and contribute to the patient's overall sense of well-being and confidence.

Is Breast Reconstruction Right for Me?

Breast reconstruction is ideal for individuals who have undergone mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery due to breast cancer or other conditions and desire to restore their breast shape and appearance. Candidates may experience emotional distress, loss of confidence, or dissatisfaction with their post-surgery appearance. Symptoms such as feeling incomplete or self-conscious about breast asymmetry may also indicate a need for our breast reconstruction. A consultation with our experienced plastic surgeons at Ascentist Plastic Surgery is essential to evaluate your unique circumstances and determine the most suitable approach to meet your needs and goals.

What to Expect: The Breast Reconstruction Procedure

Breast reconstruction typically involves multiple surgical techniques aimed at restoring the shape, appearance, and symmetry of the breasts after mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, ensuring patient comfort. Depending on the individual's needs and preferences, various methods may be employed, including flap techniques that use tissue from another area of the body to create a breast mound, tissue expanders to stretch healthy skin for implant placement, or direct-to-implant reconstruction.

The specific approach and duration of the procedure vary based on factors such as the extent of reconstruction required, the chosen technique, and any additional procedures performed simultaneously, such as nipple reconstruction or areola tattooing. While discomfort and pain levels can vary among patients, appropriate pain management strategies are implemented to minimize discomfort during and after the procedure. Overall, our skilled team at Ascentist Plastic Surgery understands the emotional weight of breast reconstruction, prioritizing patient safety, comfort, and satisfaction throughout the process.

Breast Reconstruction Recovery

During the recovery period following breast reconstruction, patients can expect some downtime as their bodies heal and adjust to the surgical changes. There may be swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications and proper postoperative care. It's important to avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for several weeks to promote proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. Patients will attend follow-up appointments with our team to monitor progress, address concerns, and remove sutures or drains as needed. As healing progresses, the breasts will gradually take on a more natural appearance, although final results may continue to evolve over several months. With time, patience, and adherence to postoperative instructions, patients can enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of our breast reconstruction.
