The breasts are a symbol of femininity and beauty. Loss or alteration of their appearance are loss due to cancer or other reasons is a very traumatizing condition for many women. Therefore, breast reconstruction with autologous (your own) tissue or with silicone implants is one of the essential procedures in reconstructive surgery. With the advent of modern reconstructive techniques, breast reconstruction after full or partial amputation of the breast (mastectomy) has become more standardized and successful, bringing back life quality to many patients.
What used to be performed as a two-stage procedure is nowadays in many cases a single multi-disciplinary operation consisting of partial or full mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction. In order to achieve the best possible results, the reconstructive technique has to be carefully chosen together with the patient.
Three months have passed since my last surgery, and I can hardly believe the results — better than I ever wished for. My breasts are even-sized for the first time in over 10 years. Many thanks for caring, for your professional work and for giving me back my stride.
