Candidates For Breast Reconstruction

The ideal candidate for breast reconstruction will:

  • Be in general good health
  • Be undergoing treatment that will not be affected by the reconstruction
  • Want to regain symmetry between breasts, after undergoing mastectomy
  • Want to restore confidence and their sense of well-being after breast cancer

Breast reconstruction can be performed at the same time as a mastectomy, known as an immediate reconstruction or afterwards, known as a delayed reconstruction.

About The Reconstruction Surgery

There are several techniques used to rebuild the breast mound after cancer. A patient’s own tissue or breast implants can be used to create a natural look.

The majority of current reconstructions are implant reconstructions, using tissue expanders and subsequently silicone implants.

When using a patient’s own tissue, many patients and surgeons choose to take tissue from the lower abdominal region to rebuild the breast mound. This procedure gives patients the additional benefit and slimming results of a tummy tuck! Patients can also choose to have tissue taken from other parts of the body, depending on available tissue and health needs.

Results and Recovery

The results of a breast reconstruction will be immediate. It may take several weeks of healing for the breast shape and position to settle into a more natural state. It is extremely important to follow Dr. Reyna’s instructions during recovery to ensure the best results.

Immediately after surgery, bandages, gauze, and a surgical support bra will be used to minimize swelling, support the new breast mounds, and protect the incisions. For several weeks, patients will need to minimize strenuous activity, lifting, and stress on the chest muscles.
