Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Also known as reconstructive mammaplasty or post-mastectomy surgery

Breast Reconstruction Surgery in Dubai

Breast reconstruction includes a variety of procedures performed to restore the form and shape of the breast, following mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery. Factors such as individual anatomy, aesthetic goals and the need for any post-surgical chemotherapy or radiation will determine your options.
Discussing your cancer surgery with a plastic surgeon before undergoing mastectomy is crucial, because the proposed cancer removal surgery may significantly affect the choices and the results of any type of breast reconstruction

When to consider breast reconstruction

• If you think reconstruction will give you a sense of psychological wellbeing or a feeling of “wholeness”
• To help restore your feelings of femininity and confidence in your appearance
• To improve symmetry if only one of your breasts is affected
• To allow you to wear low-cut necklines and normal swimwear
