Breast reconstruction is the procedure of reshaping the breast with the remaining breast tissue by using or not using implant following the removal of the breast tissue after breast cancer or other diseases. New surgical techniques and medical devices make it possible to provide an aesthetic and natural appearance to the breast. Breast reconstruction is usually performed during the removal of breast (mastectomy). After the surgery, the patient can wake up with swollen breast.
It should be kept in mind that breast reconstruction surgery may not be a simple single-session operation. The primary goal is to achieve the best result that you and your doctor decide together.
