Breast Reconstruction Options

Maybe you’ve already decided to get breast reconstruction. Perhaps you are still mulling the idea over. To make the best decision, it’s important to understand what breast reconstruction options are available. That includes the option of going flat.

Most breast reconstruction procedures are divided into either implant or autologous reconstruction. But it’s not just a matter of figuring out the type of procedure you want. You also have to decide between immediate reconstruction (which is done when you are getting your mastectomy) and delayed reconstruction (which is done after you mastectomy procedure).

Not every breast reconstruction option is always available to everyone. And not every reconstruction procedure is the right choice for you.
