Why have a breast reconstruction
Total or partial removal of the breast for breast cancer is likely to affect how you feel and look to some extent. Many women wish to address the loss of one or both breasts by undergoing reconstructive surgery or using an external prosthesis. Each woman is different and therefore making an informed choice which achieves the right outcome for you is important. For many women the use of a prosthesis is unacceptable and you may wish to restore your breast to improve your body image and well being.
