What you need to know about Breast Reconstruction in Central

Breast reconstruction is to reform or reshape the breast(s) after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. A mastectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the entire breast, usually including the nipple and areola, in order to treat or prevent breast cancer. A lumpectomy is the removal of a piece of the breast where there is a smaller tumor. This reconstruction process can help a woman find her self-confidence again and feel better during her cancer recovery.

While many factors determine what kind of breast reconstruction surgery would best suit an individual, there are two main types of breast reconstruction surgery:

  1. Flap Reconstruction - Autologous / Skin Flap Surgery
  2. Tissue Expander - Implants / Prosthetics

What's the Recovery Time?

Your period of recovery depends upon the type of reconstructive surgery you have. A couple of weeks are needed by most of the women to recover. There is swelling and soreness around the site in the first week. This continues to reduce and ultimately, after 8 weeks you should start to see signs of a full recovery. Medicines are given to relieve pain and discomfort. You will need to take 2-3 weeks off work. On average, 3-4 weeks are needed to recover from tissue expander surgery and 4-6 weeks for flap reconstructive surgery. Wear surgical bras to support your reconstructed breasts while you are recovering. Regular activities can be restarted after 2 months. Almost 1-2 years are required to get the proper shape and for the scars to fade away.

What's the Success Rate?

Breast reconstruction surgery has a high success rate, with complications usually only occurring in case of infection or a blood clot formation. According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the success rate is found to be 98% in the case of flap reconstruction surgery. While for tissue expander surgery has a success rate within the region of 94-96%. Owing to its tremendous success rate, the percentage of women going through the surgery is increasing day by day.
