Indications for Breast Reconstruction & Breast Augmentation

There are many reasons why a woman would choose breast reconstruction, the most common of which is following mastectomy for breast cancer or risk-reducing mastectomy for BRCA and hereditary risk. Additional breast reconstruction surgery may also be sought by women who have experienced poor results or outright failure, as with non-permanent implants.

Breast reconstruction is also sought to correct deformities of congenital breast disorders such as Poland Syndrome and tuberous breast among others. Still other women may look to breast augmentation to enhance or improve the size and shape of their breast.

Regardless of indication, breast reconstruction allows the patient to feel more normal, feminine and a sense of wholeness. Furthermore, studies have shown that breast reconstruction after mastectomy can have significant psychological and emotional benefits for breast cancer patients.
