The loss of one or more breasts, no matter how medically necessary, is a traumatic experience.
You know you are no less of a woman, yet you worry about how others will see you and accept you.
When a breast must be removed the remaining chest tissue can be reconstructed, complete with aureole and nipple, to appear natural, firm and shapely.
While performed with increasing frequency to restore confidence and femininity to appropriate candidates, as with any breast surgery, breast reconstruction should never be considered without a complete and thorough consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon who has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
In addition, it is wise to determine that your surgeon has operating privileges in a hospital accredited for the same surgery you are considering, even if the surgery is to be performed in the surgeon's office. Hospitals review and evaluate a surgeon's training and skills for performing the indicated surgery before granting privileges.
