Breast Reconstruction Surgery After Mastectomy

Los Angeles Breast Reconstruction Surgery After Mastectomy

By federal laws, every woman and insurance companies must cover breast reconstruction surgery by law. There is no age limitation for breast reconstruction and there are many reconstructive options that are available. Every patient requires a different kind of surgery so there is no operation that is suited for everyone. The option will be made clear once the doctor and the patient discuss possibilities.

Immediate Breast Reconstruction  or Delayed Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Immediate breast reconstruction is performed right after the breast reconstruction and at the same time as the mastectomy. Once the general surgeon has removed one or both the breasts, the plastic surgeon will then take over and begin creating the new breast(s).Some advantages of immediate reconstruction include but not limited to: preservation of the patients breast skin and a shorter and less visible mastectomy scar and also waking with breast in place after the anesthesia. It also provides better-looking breasts in combination with nipple-sparing or skin-sparing mastectomy.

Late breast reconstruction usually takes place from 6 months to one year after the mastectomy. Some of the women that need to undergo chemotherapy are advised to delay the reconstruction process as it can be dangerous in combination with chemotherapy. Most of time, several months passes after the surgery before it is recommended to start the reconstruction operation.
