Coming out of a mastectomy to eradicate breast cancer is a tough battle. It leaves behind an impact on the bodies of women cancer survivors that is visible in the form of complete or partial loss of breast size, deformation of the shape of the affected breast, asymmetry across the breasts, loss of firmness and texture and distortion of the position of the affected breast.
As such the impact of a mastectomy to fight breast cancer is not just limited to loss of breasts. A deformation of the breast delves a strong blow to the self-esteem and self-confidence of affected women and in many cases leads to a depressing loss of identity. Under such circumstances a breast reconstruction can be an empowering choice. Using modern breast reconstruction techniques, breast surgeons can drastically change things for the better of women cancer survivors. Here is all that you need to know about the procedure of a breast implant reconstruction and the physical and psychological benefits it brings.
While the effects of mastectomy and loss of breast are long lasting, these are by no means irreversible. Women cancer survivors can look forward to regaining some of their lost confidence and their original sense of self, thanks to the availability of the option of breast augmentation for cancer survivors. A breast reconstruction after mastectomy allows cancer survivors to not only reclaim their original aesthetics but also regain their long lost sense of self, their confidence and the courage to face life all over again. Breast surgeons can reconstruct a breast by making appropriate use of implants and tissue expanders.
Women who have undergone mastectomy can choose to undergo a breast augmentation. Here is a snapshot of what a general procedure of breast implant reconstruction is:
Given the physical trauma of breast cancer and the long lasting disfigurement of the body caused by mastectomy in the form of breast loss, it makes enormous good sense to suggest that breast augmentation has a rejuvenating effect on the bodies of women cancer survivors. Following are the major benefits of breast augmentation:
Beyond the obvious physiological benefits that await women cancer survivors in the aftermath of undergoing a breast augmentation, there are psychological benefits as well. Some of the major psychological benefits of breast augmentation are as follows:
A breast augmentation procedure is not just about aesthetics and what happens to the bodies of cancer surviving women on the outside. By choosing a skilled breast surgeon you can overcome both physical and psychological challenges of breast loss. When you are looking at a decision as important and life-altering as a breast implant reconstruction, it is important that you choose a skilled breast surgeon who understands not just the craft of surgery, but the unique demands of your body.
