If you are concerned about undergoing more extensive surgery than needed, you may consider fat grafting. Fat grafting is a less invasive way of adding volume to your breasts. Alternatively, many women choose not to undergo a breast reconstruction at all. You can also wear a breast prosthesis or choose to "go flat."
Don’t be afraid to change your mind. Although reconstruction is usually recommended during your mastectomy, it is always an option later in life unless you have outstanding health issues.
Your Doctor Can Help You Decide
During your consultation, your doctor will assess your health, your current condition, and discuss your overall goals to help you choose if reconstruction is right for you. To learn more about reconstruction, schedule an appointment with your doctor today.
