Breast reconstruction, in Mexico City, is an integral part of breast cancer treatment. The procedure is performed when one or both breasts are removed due to cancer or another disease.
The latest reconstructive surgery techniques, along with advanced medical devices, have made it possible for plastic surgeons to reconstruct the breasts in a way that comes close to matching the form and appearance of a natural breast.
The joy and relief of surviving breast cancer may be tinged by a sense of loss after a mastectomy, double-mastectomy, or lumpectomy.
If you have lost a breast or breasts through breast cancer surgery, a breast reconstruction in Plastic Surgery Telich can improve your self-confidence and help to ease your recovery, so that you can look (and begin to feel) like yourself again.
With immediate breast reconstruction (right after mastectomy), the patient can wake up from the procedure with a new breast and be spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast.
Why Breast Reconstruction?
Appropriate candidates for breast reconstruction include those who have undergone:
- Mastectomy, or breast removal
- Lumpectomy, or breast conserving surgery
The best candidates are women whose cancer, as far as can be determined, has been eliminated. Many breast cancer patients are candidates for reconstruction during the same operation in which the breast is removed.
Depending on the patient and her treatment plan, breast reconstruction can be performed immediately or several months later. In some cases, the patient does not feel mentally prepared to undergo reconstructive surgery.
