With nearly 12,000 women developing breast cancer in the US each year, this is a viable option for reconstruction. Thousands of these patients will have mastectomies in order to combat their cancer, which often lead to a feeling of low self-esteem and social discouragement; but with cosmetic reconstruction as an option, there’s nothing better you can do for yourself.

Desired Results of Breast Cancer Reconstruction Plastic Surgery

After going through breast cancer, women may elect to reconstruct their breasts. These procedures can result in a natural-looking and long-lasting outcome with relief of physical pain, increased self-confidence, and return to health. If you are considering this procedure for yourself or someone close to you who has endured such an ordeal, we want you to be educated on the complete process so that your experience is as positive as possible.

Some women can withstand the physical and psychological trauma of breast cancer with their breasts intact, but many others still seek reconstructive surgery to repair a breast or provide symmetry for both. There are some variations on how a reconstruction is performed depending on whether you want to use your own tissue (a DIEP flap, TRAM flap), take tissue from another part of your body (latissimus dorsi flaps), or borrow skin from elsewhere on the body. These procedures – along with other forms of cosmetic plastic surgery and non-cosmetic plastic surgeries – can be used to recommend high-quality care by meeting criteria established by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ Board Certified Plastic Surgeon certification process.

Your Individual Goals

Your breast cancer reconstruction plastic surgery goals will be discussed realistically with the doctor. Breast reconstructions are often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery. Together you will decide which procedures Dr. Miller will perform in order to achieve your desired results. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions about how to prepare. You will also schedule a pre-operative appointment to review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and (if you are also undergoing breast enlargement surgery) experiment with sizer implants.

Breast Cancer Reconstruction Procedure Details

On the day of surgery, you will have a final consultation with Dr. Miller. Your breast cancer reconstruction procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. Through a combination of techniques similar to those used in breast lift (to achieve a perky breast appearance) and breast reduction (to remove excess skin), Dr. Miller will create shapely breasts that look and feel natural. He offers several incision options to achieve your breast correction, incisions that usually heal well and present minimal scarring.

You may be sore for a few days after your breast correction procedure, but soon you will be able to resume your normal activities. One of the most difficult events a woman’s life is going through breast cancer, and after discovering this debilitating disease which alters her entire body image and self-confidence. Enhanced recovery, reconstruction, or pectoral implants may be an option to help alleviate some distress in these trying times.
