COSMETIC BODY PLASTIC SURGERY
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION AFTER MASECTOMY
The reconstruction can be done either with autologous tissue (latissimus dorsi or rectus abdominous muscle) or heterologous, i.e. dermal distending. Therefore any woman who is or has undergone a mastectomy, in theory, is a candidate for surgery. It can be done either directly by mastectomy or after it, depending on the wish of the person to be concerned. The result often exceeds all expectations.
Where is the incision for the placement of implants performed?
There are many techniques available and they should be discussed with the plastic surgeon. Each of these has pros and cons. An incision in the sub-pectoral region has a very good access to the region under the breast and is used in many cases. A section at the top of the armpit has very good access to the region under the muscle. An intersection of the areola has a very good aesthetic result but may sacrifice breast sensation and subsequent lactation.
Will I be able to breastfeed after surgery?
There are techniques that do not disturb the lactiferous ducts of the breast, thus maintaining the future lactation. However, it is very hard to guarantee that.
How much does the surgery for breast reconstruction after mastectomy cost?
