There are many choices involved in the breast reconstruction process. Perhaps the most important question to ask is:
Is breast reconstruction right for you? For tens of thousands of breast cancer survivors, the answer has been yes.
Today, most women who have mastectomies are good candidates for breast reconstruction. After a mastectomy, women choose to have breast reconstruction for many different reasons.Some no longer feel whole, or they do not feel as feminine. Others do not want to bother with the day-to-day hassle of wearing an external breast prosthesis. For many women, breast reconstruction is a good way to feel better about themselves and make a fresh new start in life.
