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.
