The aesthetic outcome of breast cancer treatment has become a major
concern. Surgical treatment of breast cancer can cause a distortion of the breast, or asymmetric shape and/or volume or even total removal of the whole breast.Breast reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other conditions. The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence and quality of life.Breast reconstruction has no effect on cancer and its safety has been proven. It does not compromise the chances of recovery or the long-term monitoring of breast cancer.
Breast reconstruction has 3 objectives:
Reconstitution of breast volume
Contralateral breast symmetrization
Reconstruction of the nipple-areola complex
