Why might Manhattan area patients consider breast reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction surgery is a typical procedure done specifically for women who have overcome breast cancer. One of the common complaints from those who have overcome breast cancer and who have had a mastectomy is the loss of their breasts. The breasts make women feel attractive, and without them, they may feel self-conscious about their appearance. Their body contours are not as curvy and they may avoid wearing tank tops or swimsuits because of their mastectomy. Dr. Edmund Kwan and the team at his Manhattan plastic surgery facility often hear women who have had mastectomies state that they wish they had their breasts back. With breast reconstruction surgery, women are now able to restore their beautiful breasts with implants.
Breast reconstruction surgery is a wonderful procedure in restoring confidence in women who have dealt with breast cancer. Some women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer may think about breast reconstruction long before they even determine how to combat their cancer. If they consider removing their breast tissue, they may want to discuss the possibility of placing breast implants for reconstructive surgery at the same time. Dr. Edmund Kwan can work with patients and their oncologist to determine if breast reconstruction at the same time as a mastectomy would be appropriate based on the patient’s specific needs.
