Benefits of reconstructive surgery for breast cancer patients

Women who have undergone a mastectomy procedure to remove cancer causing lumps in their breast may want to consider undergoing breast reconstructive surgery in order to return their life to normalcy.

Breast reconstruction is worth considering if the large part of a woman’s breasts has been removed through mastectomy. In certain surgeries, called lumpectomy or breast-conserving surgery, most of the breast will likely remain intact. In either situation, however, a woman might want to at least discuss reconstructive surgery with an experienced plastic surgeon.

Before reconstructive surgery, patients may decide the shape and appearance of their new breasts. After undergoing an ordeal involving cancer, breast reconstruction can only add to a woman’s confidence.

The Bergman Plastic Surgery team in Des Moines offers advanced medical procedures and equipment to help women restore or improve their breasts after mastectomy procedure. Find out what breast reconstruction option is best for you today by calling [phone-number].
