The “before & after” photos of breast reconstruction are more involved that those which can be seen on cosmetic websites for things like a facelift, tummy tuck, etc. Obviously these cases are more complex, but also each patient has a different story. In some cases, the reconstruction may have been done at the same time as the mastectomy, in other cases it was done later. Some patients came to our office having already had a failed reconstruction elsewhere and need revisions or a completely new reconstruction done here. Some patients are affected by radiation, others are not. All of this affects the case so we have provided each of these examples with a short story regarding the case.
It is important to read the stories with each case study to fully understand the cases.
