What are the Benefits of Breast Reconstruction in Phoenix?
Breast reconstruction in Phoenix helps you improve your self-image and confidence. It decreases the sense of loss you may feel, ensuring that you yield better results from your treatment as well.
Here are some more benefits of the Phoenix breast reconstruction procedure:
- You will benefit in case you have undergone a lumpectomy or mastectomy
- Missing nipples, or other congenital abnormalities or defects of the breasts can be corrected
- The results of a poor prior surgery can be improved, increasing your self confidence
It is important to remain assured that reconstruction in no way results in your cancer returning nor does it need to interfere with your current treatment procedures like chemotherapy or radiation.
You can choose to have a breast reconstruction procedure done immediately after your mastectomy or years later.
Your Options During Breast Reconstruction
There are three different options during your Phoenix breast reconstruction procedure that you can choose from:
- Immediate implant – women who have sufficient breast tissue to support a breast implant can opt for this procedure. Most radiation patients are good candidates for this option.
- Implant using tissue expanders – women who require that the tissue be increased for supporting an implant use this option. Space is made for a soft implant using tissue expanders over a period of a few months through a series of in office appointments.
- Autologous or flap method – some Phoenix women may prefer a non-implant based reconstruction or require a more extensive method including using the tissue from their back or abdomen for reconstruction. This is most beneficial for those who have had a history of radiation therapy or might have it in the future.
