Breast Reconstruction and Implant  Brisbane

As the rate of breast cancer continue to rise, and with modern advances in the treatment for breast cancer, more women are surviving the disease than ever before, many after having undergone a mastectomy (surgical removal of the breasts). Today’s advances in microsurgical breast reconstruction and implant technology gives women who feel incomplete after loosing one or both breasts through treatment for breast cancer a chance to regain diginity, self-esteem, and femininity. Breast reconstruction can be performed immediately after mastectomy (immediate reconstruction), or in stages (delayed reconstruction). Many factors play a role in determining which type of breast reconstruction best suits a particular patient, including the patient’s body type, her goals and expectations, and the need for radiotherapy treatment.
