Why Choose Breast Reconstruction?
Having a mastectomy is an extremely emotional experience. You lose a part of yourself when your breasts are removed. You have no choice in the matter when you need to fight such a deadly disease. It means changing your body and changing the way that you think about yourself. You don’t have to continue this way. You can reclaim your confidence. You’ll be more comfortable with your partner and about your body image after breast reconstruction. When you have a boost in spirits, it will be easier to take on whatever is in store for you next.

Our plastic surgeon will give you options and tailor your procedure for you. Expect downtime while your amount of physical activity is restricted. You want to take every precaution to ensure optimal results. If you take good care of yourself, you will heal more quickly. You’ll be able to enjoy having breasts again. Breast reconstruction gives you a chance to feel like you are beginning the next chapter in your life. It’s time to put the worst of your experiences with cancer behind you so that you can pick yourself up again.
