If you need a mastectomy, you have the option of having or not undergoing surgery to rebuild the breast shape. Instead of breast reconstruction, you can choose to use a breast shape that replaces the breast, use pads inside your bra or do nothing. All these options have pros and cons. What is right for one woman may not be right for another. Breast reconstruction can be done at the same time as the mastectomy, or it can be done later. If radiation therapy is part of the treatment plan, your doctor may suggest waiting until after radiation therapy.
If you are thinking about breast reconstruction, talk to a plastic surgeon before the mastectomy, even if you plan to have it reconstructed later. A surgeon can reconstruct the breast in many ways. Some women choose to have breast implants, which are filled with saline or silicone gel. Another method uses tissue taken from another part of your body. The plastic surgeon can remove the skin, muscles and fat from the lower abdomen, back or buttocks.
The type of reconstruction that is best for you depends on your age, body type, and the type of cancer surgery you have had. A plastic surgeon can help you decide.
