Many women who undergo treatment for breast cancer often have a mastectomy performed, a surgery in which the entire breast is removed. A lumpectomy may also be an option, which is partial removal of the breast.
For those who would like to restore the natural appearance of their breasts, breast reconstruction surgery is an option. Many patients find this procedure to be of great benefit to their self confidence.
The primary goal of breast reconstruction is so the end result matches the opposite breast as closely as possible. If both breasts are removed, Dr. Lee will create a natural-looking shape in line with the proportions of the woman’s body and her own preferences. Saline or silicone implants may be used for this procedure, depending on the wishes of the patient.
