Reconstructive Breast Surgery after Mastectomy

Women who have lost one or both breasts to cancer may desire to have their breasts reconstructed. Reconstruction may be done at the same time as the breast is removed via mastectomy (immediate reconstruction) or at a later time (delayed reconstruction), and is often covered by insurance. A variety of breast reconstruction options exist and can restore breasts to near normal shape, size, and appearance.
