Breast reconstruction overview clear shows that modern high-technological cosmetic surgery procedures provide perfect possibility of breasts and nipple reconstruction that is often necessary for patients that had gone through the mastectomy (breasts removal) in the case of cancer or pre-cancerous condition diseases. Sometimes breast reconstruction techniques are used for general correction of breasts deformations.
A big variety of existing breast reconstruction techniques guarantees possibility of natural breasts effect after the surgery that provides very effective breasts reconstruction that results in breasts shape, size that are close to original variants. Most women-patients feel naturally and comfortably after surgery. And it is proved that in 99% of cases the operation guarantees psychological relief.
According to the latest breast reconstruction overview there are two big branches of possible breast reconstruction procedures variants: immediate and delayed breast reconstructions (in the basis of this classification there is a fact of breast reconstruction operations connection with mastectomy procedure). From the point of psychological stress of women caused with the realization of breasts loss it is better to tend to immediate reconstruction. But it is obvious non-professionalism of such way of looking at the problem.
Breast reconstruction overview shows that indeed both possible variants of breast reconstruction operations have their advantages and disadvantages.
In the case of immediate reconstruction, the team of surgeons performs solution by the complex procedure: general surgeon who removes breasts and cosmetic surgeon who reconstruct new breasts. The lists of these variants? advantages are headed by the psychological comfort. Many surgeons also believe that immediate procedure allows avoiding additional scaring and significant skin preserving. Another big plus is reality of one healing and recovery process instead of two stresses after different operations.
But unfortunately immediate procedure is not available to everyone. It is difficult to go through additional examination and procedures of breast reconstruction technique choice while coping with cancer care and treatment courses. So sometimes delayed reconstruction is preferable and works better, as it is planned better.
Breast reconstruction description and breast reconstruction overview presents some variants of available now breast reconstruction techniques. The commonest types are breast implants reconstruction and flap reconstruction. Breast implants reconstruction technique inherited much from breast augmentation procedure. The implants rubber shells are filled with well-known (as spread implant material) silicone or gel. Silicone or gel implants are placed under the chest muscle. During flap technique the cosmetic surgeon uses skin, fat and muscles taken from other body areas for new breasts creation. The advantage of this technique is avoiding of many complications thanks to using of natural materials.
