The Surgeon has suggested that after my operation for cancer breast reconstruction could be carried out. What would that involve?
Breast reconstruction is carried out by using tissue from another part of your body to recreate a breast shape. Often, part of one of the big muscles from your back is used and tucked under the skin on the front of the chest wall to restore the shape of the breast. One advantages of this type of reconstruction is that it carries no risk of being rejected, as can happen with an implant.
