Breast reconstruction surgery is a personal choice for women who undergo surgery as part of their breast cancer treatment. If you choose to pursue breast reconstruction, there are many options for you to consider, including the timing of your reconstruction and which technique is best for you. Many factors play a role in that decision including:

  • the stage of your cancer
  • whether your treatment includes radiation therapy and chemotherapy
  • the presence of other medical conditions like diabetes
  • your individual goals and desired results

Your plastic surgeon helps you make these decisions. As part of your breast cancer team, we work closely with you, your medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, and surgical oncologist. We explain how we develop your personalized treatment plan and are always available to answer your questions.
