Breast reconstruction, although area (right side)

Breast reconstruction, although very important to many women,
is a choice

The first step in the process is to decide whether you want reconstruction. There are some women who make a personal choice to not undergo any additional surgery and or their other health problems make it unsafe to have reconstruction. If you decide not to have breast reconstruction, you may elect to use an external prosthesis in your bra instead.

If you do decide to have breast reconstruction, there are many factors that go into deciding the best options for you. Regardless of techniques, this is a process that usually takes 2-3 procedures over the time span of 3-6 months. There are some cases where reconstruction can be achieved in one stage, but these are less common.
