In women, complete or partial loss of breast tissue due to cancer or any other reason may result in wholistic deficiency and accordingly negative moods in women.
Breast reconstruction can be operated concurrently with the removal of the breast according to the oncological process, or it can be performed after the surgical-oncological treatment is completed. As treatment modalities, breast reconstruction can be operated using silicone-containing breast implant produced for these surgeries, the use of materials also known as balloon treatment, which we call expander, and/or the patient's own tissues. Which of these modalities will be chosen and it’s timing is shaped according to the oncological process, the patient's anatomical structure and expectations.
Simultaneous breast reconstruction operations with mastectomy have better visual results. However, there is a possibility that the operations that are postponed due to the patient's post-operative radiation therapy, the patient's request or oncological reasons will be operated later. If necessary, it is possible to obtain better, more holistic visual results by operating a lift/reduction/augmentation to the opposite side breast.If you are interested in aesthetics, Breast Lifting , Breast Augmentation and Breast Reduction you should definitely read our articles.
