Secondary Reconstruction with Simple Implant

General

Breast reconstruction with an implant is the most applied surgery after a mastectomy.

Technically the surgery is a relatively simple procedure. The implant is placed in a sub-pectoral pocket. The method is most appropriate for women with small non-ptotic breasts.

Loss of a breast following a mastectomy creates a feeling of being less feminine in some women. Breast reconstruction can strengthen the self-image and is therefore a good option after mastectomy.

Indication

  • A patient's desire for reconstruction of the breast after mastectomy.

Contraindication

  • Previous irradiation can be a relative contraindication

Goal

  • To improve self-image 
  • Cosmetic appearance 
  • Anatomical balance
