Breast Reconstruction: Restoring Your Confidence After Breast Cancer

breast reconstruction Survivors of breast cancer who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy may feel as though they lost a part of their womanhood. Having some or all of your breasts removed can be difficult and emotional. You may have made this decision for your health, but it does not make it any easier. If you are struggling in the aftermath of surviving breast cancer and feel insecure, a breast reconstruction can restore the shape of your breasts and enhance your confidence.

What Is Breast Reconstruction?

You may have heard of breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift, but breast reconstruction is meant for breast cancer survivors. It involves utilizing implants or tissue from other areas of the body to reconstruct and reform the breasts.

Whether you have only undergone a mastectomy for one or both breasts, this procedure can reconstruct and restore balance to your breasts. You can choose to have it done immediately following your mastectomy or at a later time.

How Can Breast Reconstruction Restore Your Confidence? 

Breast reconstruction has multiple benefits for breast cancer survivors, including:

  • Boost confidence: The loss of breast tissue can be difficult for some women, and breast reconstruction can help to restore their breasts and improve self-esteem.
  • Restore balance to the breasts: If you have had a lumpectomy or a mastectomy on only one breast, you may feel insecure about the lack of balance. Some women may utilize specialized bras. Breast reconstruction can restore the balance of your breasts.
  • No need for a prosthesis: A prosthesis, or a breast form, may be worn to give the appearance of breasts. A breast reconstruction eliminates the need for these breast forms.

Can a Breast Reconstruction Hide Cancer or Make Breast Cancer Come Back?

Rest assured, breast reconstruction does not hide cancer should you have to go back for a checkup. It also does not cause cancer. If you choose to have a breast reconstruction, make sure you inform the doctor performing the mammogram so that they can be careful when conducting their exam.
