Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the world. Every year, many women have their breast surgically removed due to this disease. Breast reconstruction is the creation of breasts by using the own tissue of the patients in women who have lost their breasts.
The timing of this operation should be determined in mutual decisions of the general surgeon, oncologist and plastic surgeon. If everything is appropriate mastectomy (breast-removal operation) and this application can be carried out simultaneously.
The treatment history of the patient is very important for the methods to be used. If the patient received or need to receive radiotherapy, then silicone prosthesis application is not suitable.
Since the treatment is carried out by using the own tissues of the patients, definite pathology results should be obtained before the decision. In case there is a risky situation, experts will evaluate other alternatives.
This treatment does not increase the risk of breast cancer. It does not prevent the cancer screening. The psychological state of the patient will improve after the operation that is carried out under general anesthesia.
It will be easy for the patient to return to her social life. More than one operation may be needed for artificial looking or non-symmetrical breasts.
