Advice on Breast Cancer Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction Reduces Emotional Loss of Mastectomy

Having a breast surgically removed can be frightening, even though you know it's the best option. It can also result in feelings of loss, anger, frustration and dismay. Women may no longer find themselves attractive, or fear that their partner won't. Clothes may not fit the same way. The shock of waking up from surgery "breastless" can be as bad or worse that the shock of the diagnosis itself. Many women opt for reconstruction surgery to reduce the emotional impact of a mastectomy. Reconstruction involves inserting an artificial breast implant, or implanting tissue and muscle from another part of your body. If you are concerned about losing your breast(s), get advice and information about reconstruction to determine if it's right for you.
