Breast Reconstruction


Often women with breast cancer have to undergo a mastectomy operation which is the removal of the mammary gland and skin.

Breast reconstruction surgery is concerned with rebuilding the removed breast in order to restore their previous appearance.

This procedure can be done either together with mastectomy or three to six months after. The surgeon will use a silicon implant covered with muscle and skin, or even the patient’s own tissue, depending on the case.

In many cases the other breast also has to be operated on in order to achieve symmetry.

Breast reconstruction is always performed under general anaesthesia and requires a two day stay in the hospital.
