After breast cancer, or following a mastectomy, a woman may wish to have additional surgery to rebuild the look and shape of the breasts. This is known as breast reconstructive surgery. There are some great options for breast reconstruction in Murfreesboro which can help you to regain confidence after illness and give you the chance to look and feel fantastic once again.
Women typically choose to have breast reconstruction for several reasons, including (but not limited to):
• No longer wanting to wear an external prosthetic breast form inside a bra
• To permanently regain shape in the breast(s)
• To make the chest look more balanced when wearing a swimsuit or bra
• To be more comfortable with the body and to improve self-esteem
Breast reconstruction Murfreesboro: what you should know
The latest techniques for breast reconstruction in Murfreesboro are incredibly advanced to the point where scarring can be virtually eliminated. After surgery, when you wear a bra, your breasts will be alike in size enough to help you to feel more comfortable with your appearance, regardless of the type of clothing you choose to wear.
Some women elect to have a breast reconstruction performed at the same time as a mastectomy – this is known as an immediate reconstruction. However, the trauma and stress of breast removal can often take its toll on women who simply want to get better and concentrate on the cosmetic aspects later. This is known as a delayed reconstruction.
Sometimes, tissue from the shoulder, stomach or buttocks can be used to reconstruct the breast. Some women elect for this as the natural material used will be a perfect match – but others elect for synthetic materials instead.
Do some women get reconstruction on both breasts at the same time?
In some cases, it might be practical for our surgeon to also reshape a healthy breast to match the reconstructed breast. Techniques involved include reducing the breast in size, enlarging it or surgically lifting it. Our qualified physician will be able to advise on the best way to improve the overall appearance of the breasts, and whether surgery on both breasts is necessary.
