Mastectomy is a procedure that many women need to perform due to various diseases. This surgery may be one of the scariest things that many people think they will experience, but the fact is that when it is needed, the benefits can outweigh the disadvantages.

However, mastectomy is a practical procedure that can have a great impact on a person's mood and self-confidence. Therefore, many breast surgeons prefer to avoid it as much as possible and use local breast resection (lumpectomy).

However, medical science and surgical skills have reached a point today where even after a mastectomy, it is possible to simply restore the lost volume of the breasts with a breast reconstruction operation so that there is no change in the appearance of the breasts.

Mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery

Breast augmentation is called a mastectomy or removal of the breast. In addition to mastectomy, there is breast reconstruction, which is a type of surgery to make new breasts after mastectomy. During this operation, the surgeon creates a new shape for the evacuated breasts by removing tissues from other parts of the body, or by using artificial tissues called implants or prostheses.

Before the operation, the surgeon will talk to you about the appropriate options for breast reconstruction.

Whether or not you undergo breast reconstruction depends entirely on your choice. There are some women who do not want to have breast reconstruction surgery after breast augmentation surgery.

You can have breast reconstruction at the same time as your mastectomy, which is called instant reconstruction. You can also have breast reconstruction, which is called delayed breast reconstruction, months or even years after the breast augmentation procedure. Depending on your choice and the possibility of surgery, you can have breast reconstruction surgery at these times. There are many women who prefer to have this operation at the same time as a mastectomy, and many others prefer to do it later.

On the other hand, do not worry. You will have plenty of time to talk to your doctor and specialist surgeon about these surgeries and evaluate their benefits and risks. In addition, the surgeon can show you pictures of women who have previously had breast reconstruction surgery to see an example of a possible outcome.

If you do not perform breast reconstruction immediately, your doctor will have plenty of time to give you a variety of options and consult with you. While your breasts have been emptied and you are waiting for the reconstruction operation, you can use special volumizing bras, until it is time for the prosthesis inside the breast.


Choice of mastectomy without breast reconstruction

You may think to yourself and decide not to use breast augmentation prostheses, and not undergo breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Women may make this decision for a variety of reasons:


There are many who do not like to try another surgery

There are many who want to get back to normal as soon as possible

There are many people who do not like to have artificial prostheses in their body because they are not comfortable with them.

Radiation therapy after mastectomy

You may need radiation therapy after mastectomy to minimize the risk and chance of the cancer coming back. Radiation therapy is a method that uses focused rays to weaken and kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy after breast surgery kills cells that may still be in the breast tissue and can become cancerous again. However, since their size and number are not significant, they can be removed without the need for re-surgery.

However, in some cases where breast cancer is not so advanced and is in its early stages, it can be eliminated without the need for surgery, and only with radiation therapy.


The best breast surgeon

There are many surgeons who can perform a mastectomy on you. But it is always the advice of world-class researchers and doctors to see a doctor who specializes in breast surgery for mastectomy and any other type of breast surgery. This group of doctors specializes in breast organs and can perform therapeutic surgeries as well as cosmetic surgeries. By visiting these doctors, you can have a comfortable dream that you are experiencing the best surgery and the appearance of your breasts will not be damaged.
