Breast Reconstruction after Cancer

Breast reconstruction is a type of surgery for women who have had a breast removed (mastectomy). The surgery rebuilds the breast so that it is about the same size and shape as it was before. The nipple and areola (the darker area around the nipple) can also be added. Most women who have had a mastectomy can have reconstruction. Breast Reconstruction can also be performed along with mastectomy as a single surgical procedure
