If you are wanting reconstruction after your surgery, most surgeons suggest having everything done at once to reduce scar tissue.

There are several options one being, taking an area from your stomach and building your new breast. Many women like this because of having a.tummy tuck. An added bonus!

Talk with your doctor, ask many questions until you understand your options and happy with the answers.

Please keep in touch

Hi Anon,

Breast Repair/Reconstruction is a personal choice and no one should make this decision for you. Your surgeon is the best person to inform you of your options and then it is up to you to decide.

Wishing you the best,
