Post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is often a possibility with patients recovering from breast cancer treatment. For many, it is a major part of the road to recovery and regaining a sense of normalcy. Even if only one breast has been reduced or removed, reconstruction is possible. A post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is a cosmetic surgery that rebuilds the breast to its original shape, appearance and size. The technique involved with breast reconstruction varies but may often require a donor flap of tissue from the abdomen or back. This donor flap is used to provide enough tissue to support a new breast implant.
