Advice on Breast Cancer Reconstruction

When to Have Breast Reconstruction Done

Breast reconstruction can often be performed immediately after a mastectomy, in the same operation. Benefits of this procedure include avoiding another surgery, shorter recovery time than if you had two surgeries, and not waking up from the surgery without a breast. Some women choose to have two separate procedures, preferring to focus on beating their cancer before worrying about their appearance. Some also want to take time to decide if they want to have reconstruction. It's important to remember that you can choose to have reconstruction later. You can weigh your options and decide, coming back after the mastectomy has healed.
