When breast cancer necessitates mastectomy surgery, many patients turn to a skilled plastic surgeon to learn about the breast reconstruction procedure. With breast reconstruction, we are able to work to restore the look and feel of the breast mound.
In order to replace the lost breast volume after mastectomy surgery, a plastic surgeon can either use breast implants or autologous donor tissue during breast reconstruction. With breast implants, silicone or saline implants can be used. With autologous grafting, tissue from the patient’s back, gluteal region, or abdominal region can be used.
