Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction after mastectomy is an important part of the care of women with breast cancer.

Breast reconstruction is also more commonly being utilised in conjunction with prophylactic mastectomy for women at high risk of developing breast cancer, as made public by Angelina Jolie. 

The choice of breast reconstruction techniques are quite varied and may depend on how much breast remains, whether radiotherapy is required and the timing with regard to the mastectomy. They vary from implants alone, with tissue expanders, with a local or “free” flap of your own tissue or with flap surgery alone.

'Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.'
