The most common reason why women get breast reconstruction in Beverly Hills is if they have had a mastectomy. Mastectomy is a surgery where one or both of a woman’s breasts are removed in an effort to treat breast cancer or reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. Breast reconstruction is an optional procedure to help restore the shape of a woman’s breasts and replace tissue lost after a mastectomy. Breast reconstruction is an elective procedure, and some women choose to have a mastectomy without reconstruction. At Ideal Face & Body, we have the expertise and skill to restore your breasts so they resemble your original breasts, if not better.
Benefits of Breast Reconstruction
The breasts are an essential part of a woman’s overall sense of self. Being diagnosed with breast cancer and having to undergo a mastectomy can be life-changing. Breast reconstruction plays an important role in restoring the physical and emotional balance after a mastectomy. Having breast reconstruction surgery allows a woman to wear normal clothing and feel comfortable. It also helps boost her confidence when she is not wearing any clothes. With breast reconstruction, women are able to wear a bathing suit without feeling self-conscious.
A patient chooses to either have the breast reconstruction at the same time as the mastectomy or at a later date. Some women will choose delayed reconstruction because they do not want to make decisions about reconstruction surgery while they are getting treatment for breast cancer. They wait until after their breast cancer surgery to get reconstruction surgery. Others choose delayed reconstruction because at the time of treatment, they do not want any more surgery other than what is needed and they change their mind later.
