Is Breast Reconstruction the Right Choice for You?


Is Breast reconstruction the right choice for you? Answering this question correctly requires years of experience and expertise. For a naive person who has been through mastectomy, this has always been a puzzle. At breast surgery clinic in dubai, we have tried to answer this question once and for all.

Breast cancer is a difficult time and it is very hard to go through it. The removal of the breast is yet another excruciating experience that comes after it. Every human being can imagine how painful the loss of a vital body part is. The breast is the sign of womanhood. Women feel the emptiness in their personality after losing it. The thought of living without the breast makes women less confident and less happy about their body.

Women fall victim to sadness, uncertainty, confusion, and anger in the aftermath of mastectomy. In order to avoid all these psychological and appearance-related problems, doctors recommend an immediate breast reconstruction so that the patient could take a new start after having been through a very rough time of breast cancer. Do ask the following three questions if you want to know ;

  • How do I feel about having more surgery?
  • Will breast reconstruction make me feel whole again?
  • How can breast reconstruction procedures make me feel whole again?

Breast reconstruction can either be immediate or delayed. An immediate breast reconstruction is performed right after the removal of the breast. On the other hand, a delayed breast reconstruction is performed sometime after the removal of the breast. Breast reconstruction is evolving at a fast pace but in a broader sense; the breast reconstruction procedure can be of two types that are briefly explained below;

  • Implant Reconstruction: As its name suggests, implant based breast reconstruction technique of breast reconstruction uses an implant to reconstructing the breast. It is a two-stage procedure. In the first step, an expander is used to create room for an implant. In the second step, an implant made of silicone or saline is inserted. The nipple reconstruction is done after this. A foreign substance made of silicone or saline material is placed inside the breast to reconstruct the breast.
  • Autologous or Flap Reconstruction: As its name suggests, Autologous Flap Reconstruction uses the flap or fat of the same person to reconstruct the breast. Women often like this technique because it makes use of the flap or fat of the same person and no foreign substance is placed inside the breast. It is usually a one-stage, but the lengthier procedure, involving a four- to five-day hospital stay.

Both implant reconstruction and autologous reconstruction have their own advantages and disadvantages. If you are not able to decide if you need an implant or autologous reconstruction, please consult with your doctor. Your doctor will teach you further about the selection of a right technique.
