Breast reconstruction is a delicate plastic-reconstructive procedure that involves many considerations, both on an aesthetic as well as psychological level. The surgery should be interpreted as an integral part of the therapeutic procedure for breast cancer and a consequent mastectomy (removal of one or both breasts), or a reconstruction with an expander (expandable implant) to recreate the shape of a breast.
When to undertake breast reconstruction
Whether it is done during or after a mastectomy, the initial reconstruction is sometimes not satisfactory, so the patient feels the need for further improvement, especially if the new breast (in case of single breast reconstruction) shows asymmetries or looks different compared with the other.
At Image Regenerative Clinic, the goal is to improve those cases where an initial mastectomy has left the patient feeling there are noticeable unattractive issues. Most cases can be solved following a quick and painless procedure with a very short recovery time (usually just a couple of days).
It is advisable to contact Professor Carlo Tremolada for a consultation.
For whom is it appropriate
