Breast Reconstruction Surgery – Breast Cancer Chicago
To remove cancerous breast tissue, mastectomy surgery may be required. The idea of change in the structure of the breasts can be accompanied by a number of feelings. Breast reconstruction surgery to restore the breasts’ appearance and feel does a great deal to ease this difficult transition in a woman’s life.
The prospect of mastectomy surgery may create feelings of fear and uncertainty, along with a feeling of a loss of one’s sense of femininity. A woman may also experience issues with self-confidence, body image, and self-esteem.
Knowing that the appearance of the breasts will be restored either during or after mastectomy surgery can make the process feel a little less intimidating. Seeing Before and After photos from previous patients during a consultation can also be reassuring.
