Your reconstruction journey
Your breasts consist of milk ducts and glands, which sit on top of your chest muscles.
The surrounding fatty tissue provides the shape of your breasts. Breast cancer surgery
can significantly change this shape, depending on how much breast tissue and skin is removed,
and how much tissue reaction or scarring remains in response to the surgery, chemotherapy,
or radiation therapy.
Talk to your plastic surgeon about the fullness you want for your breast reconstruction—whether
it is the same amount you had before your mastectomy or something different. Your final look depends on many factors,
including how much breast tissue you have after your mastectomy.
Your surgeon can help you choose the best option based on your needs, wants, unique body structure, and more.
