Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Types of Breast Reconstruction Surgery
- Posted on: Oct 30 2019
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ISAPS wants to answer some of your questions about breast reconstruction post-recovery.
Many women choose to get breast reconstruction surgery after battling breast cancer. When it comes to breast reconstruction, there are two types: implant reconstruction, which uses breast implants, or “flap” reconstruction, which involves taking a section of tissue from one area of the body — like your abdomen — and transplanting it.
An ISAPS plastic surgeon can help you figure out which option is right for you. Find yours today at https://www.isaps.org/find-a-surgeon/ and let us know if you have any questions regarding breast implants or breast reconstruction.
