What is Reconstruction Breast Surgery?

Reconstruction breast surgery’s purpose is to reconstruct the entire breast/s or parts of the breast/s.  Most commonly breast reconstruction surgery is tailored for women who suffer from the removal of internal and/or external tissues of the breasts due to breast cancer. However, reconstruction breast surgery may be necessary if a previous breast surgery had resulted in complications or you wish to modify the size of your breasts. The removal of solid masses (cysts) caused by harmful substances being injected into the breasts is also a common reason for the reconstruction of the breast may be required surgery. The types of reconstructive surgeries vary, and some may use one or more techniques, depending on the case of the patient.

The following are common types of reconstruction breast surgeries:

  • Breast reconstruction using Breast Implants
  • Breast reconstruction using autologous tissue (your own tissue, also known as “tissue flap”)
  • Breast reconstruction using an acellular dermal matrix (ADM)

Breast reconstruction surgery is usually followed by various breast cancer-related surgeries such as: 

  • Mastectomy
  • Lumpectomy
  • Subcutaneous (under the skin) mastectomy
  • Quadrantectomy (removal of approximately a quarter of the breast)

If you are not sure it is the right time to undergo a breast augmentation surgery revision, seek advice from a reconstructive plastic surgeon. They will give you the right advice by identifying the problems caused by your breast implants. You will be given replacement options and you will be able to reach the decision, whether a revision is right for you.

Common signs you may need a breast revision:

  • Your breasts feel noticeably more sensitive than normal
  • Your breasts hurt when you touch them
  • Your breasts hurt when you flex your chest muscles
  • Capsular contracture has occurred
  • Your breast implants have ruptured
  • Your implants have repositioned
  • You desire to change the size of your implants

Choosing the Right Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon

Selecting a surgeon for your reconstruction breast surgery can be stressful but asking the right questions during your consultation may give you the right insights on whether the plastic surgeon is right for you or not. A qualified surgeon will have at least one board certification and has at least two decades of experience in breast surgeries. The plastic surgeon you choose for your reconstruction breast surgery should have ample before/after images of reconstructive surgeries to present to you during your consultation. It is nearly impossible that reconstruction breast surgery produces totally perfect results. Receiving realistic surgical result expectations from your surgeon is key, as having unmanaged expectations may lead to severe disappointment in the result of the surgery.
