What will I look like after breast reconstruction plastic surgery?
In a breast reconstruction, your surgeon's goal is to do everything within reason to recreate the natural appearance of your pre-mastectomy breast. The extent to which this is possible depends on the procedure you plan to have done, the lengths to which you want to go, and your unique anatomical factors. You should discuss this in some detail with your surgeon before the surgery, so you know what to expect beforehand.
What are the risks of breast reconstruction?
Most of the risks of breast reconstruction are general risks associated with any surgical procedure.
Most significant risks specific to breast reconstruction are directly related to the healing process . Your surgeon will discuss all of the risks and potential complications of the procedure with you before you make a final decision about a reconstruction procedure.
