Reconstruction

We offer a range of reconstructive surgery.

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY

Breast reconstruction is the rebuilding of a breast so as to construct a natural-looking breast.

Reconstruction of the breast if often required for:

  • asymmetric or abnormal development of the breasts,
  • breast deformity caused by trauma or burns
  • post-mastectomy for breast cancer

There is a variety of procedures available to reconstruct the breast mound, areola and nipple. It can involve the use of a patent’s own tissues or prostheses such as tissue expanders and breast implants.

Often breast surgery may involve more than one procedure with the initial operation designed to establish a breast shape and a second procedure to create a nipple and possibly to correct residual scars and shape. Occasional the other breast may be operated on to lift it or alter its size in order to match the reconstructed breast.

Following mastectomy for breast malignancy, woman have the option of an immediate reconstruction or delaying the reconstruction until after the completion of radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

Our surgeons will discuss the reconstructive options available as each one has advantages and disadvantages. We can also work with your breast surgeon to co-ordinate and expedite appropriate treatment and reconstruction in a timely manner.
