Advice on Breast Cancer Reconstruction

Alternatives to Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Although many women choose to have reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy, there are other alternatives. There are many different types of prosthetic breasts that will look normal under clothes. Some attach directly to the skin to be worn under the bra, while others can be inserted into specially-made bras. If only a portion of your breast was removed, you may be able to get a prosthesis just for that. Talk to your doctor about alternatives if reconstruction makes you uncomfortable. Prosthetics won't help much when you're unclothed, but no one will be able to tell when you're dressed.
