Restore your femininity


Breast reconstruction has become an integral part of breast cancer treatment. There are many methods which enable the reconstruction of the lost breast: using the patient’s own tissues or breast implants.

Breast reconstruction is a procedure which consists of 3 stages: reconstruction of the lost breast, restoration of breast symmetry, reconstruction of the nipple-areola complex.

Breast reconstruction with expander and implant

This method is recommended to patients who have not undergone radiotherapy. During the first surgery, a breast expander is implanted, which is subsequently filled up to achieved the desired breast size. The second procedure involves replacing the expander with a breast implant.

Breast reconstruction with the latissimus dorsi flap

This is a method dedicated to patients who have undergone radiotherapy. It enables the transfer of a musculocutaneous flap from the back in order to ensure good quality tissue for breast reconstruction with immediate implantation of an expander or breast implant.

Regardless of the selected reconstruction method, post-operative pain is not excessive. We recommend wearing a special bra for 2 months and avoiding excessive physical activity for one month.

Subsequent stages of breast reconstruction should take place in 2-3-month intervals.

During the consultation, the plastic surgeon will present reconstruction options available to the specific patient and plan the whole treatment process.
