Implant Based Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction is a surgery performed to restore the shape and size of the breast following cancer surgery. Breast reconstruction can be performed by using implants to replace the breast tissue or by replacing the breast tissue with tissue transplanted from your stomach, buttocks, back or thigh. Breast implants are artificial shells filled with sterile saline or silicone gel which is surgically implanted to replace breast tissue. They vary in shape and texture and can be placed either under or over the chest muscles.
