Breast Reconstruction/ Enhancement

Configuring Contours with Competence and Expertise

Breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction can drastically alter a woman’s appearance and self-confidence. Patients who want to improve their breast size or shape, or who need breast reconstruction surgery after the excision of malignant tissue in the breast, can turn to our physicians for cutting-edge choices.

What are Breasts made of?

Different forms of fatty, fibrous, and glandular tissue can be found in female breasts:

  • The breast lobes and breast ducts are glandular tissue.
  • Ligaments and scar tissue are both formed of fibrous tissue, often known as supporting or connective tissue.
  • Fatty tissue fills in the gaps between glandular and fibrous tissue, determining the size of your breasts to a considerable extent.

The psychological effects of breast removal

Breast removal can have severe psychological consequences, which is unsurprising. Many women equate their breasts with femininity, sexiness, and attractiveness, and they may feel lacking in these areas if they don’t have them. Some women are so devastated by the loss of their breasts that they develop low self-esteem and even melancholy, which is exacerbated by the strained emotions that often accompany a breast cancer diagnosis.

Fortunately, a patient’s feminine contours and confidence in their look can be restored with a breast reconstruction. At Medica, our expert cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons examine and analyze your condition and accordingly suggest you with a surgical program that would best suit your needs.

What is the Difference between Breast Augmentation and Reconstruction? ​​​​​​​

With such similar titles, it’s no surprise that many people confuse breast augmentation and breast reconstruction surgery. A breast reconstruction, on the other hand, is a fundamentally different surgery from a breast augmentation in terms of why the procedure is desired.

The difference between a breast augmentation and a breast reconstruction is explained here.

What is Breast Augmentation?

It is used to expand the size of the breasts and provide a bigger silhouette to ladies who are unhappy with their original size. Artificial implants, either silicone or saline, are typically used. Saline implants are put into the chest empty and then filled to the desired level, whereas silicone implants are pre-filled and come in a variety of sizes.

Breast augmentation surgery is so prevalent that it is fairly simple for a skilled plastic surgeon to undertake. The implant is put and arranged in position after the incisions are made under the breasts, and the wound is closed with sutures and covered in a compression garment to help manage post-operative swelling and pain.

Every month, thousands of cancer-related breast removal procedures are performed in India.

What is Breast Reconstruction?​​​​

The term “breast reconstruction” refers to the reconstruction of a woman’s breasts after they have been surgically removed. This is most commonly done as a result of a breast cancer diagnosis or because the woman has a high risk of breast cancer and wants her breasts removed as a preventative measure.

Reconstruction may necessitate multiple procedures. Breast reconstruction can be done in a variety of ways. Breast implants made of silicone or saline are used by certain women. A flap of tissue from your body is used in other treatments (such as tissue from the lower belly).

Breast reconstruction can take place immediately following breast cancer surgery (immediate reconstruction). It could happen weeks, months, or even years later (delayed reconstruction). It’s possible that you’ll need surgery to restore both breasts. Alternatively, your doctor may replace one breast and remodel the other. Your doctor may suggest many procedures spread out across several stages.

After a mastectomy, some patients opt for breast reconstruction, although the majority do not. Breast reconstruction is a highly personal decision.

Is there a difference between a breast reconstruction and a breast enhancement procedure?

In a nutshell, no. The size of your breasts will be boosted using either a saline or silicone implant, just as a breast augmentation. Although a saline implant has the advantage of being filled after insertion, allowing your surgeon to make minor modifications, the size of your implants will be established ahead of time. This is especially useful if you’re having a single breast reconstructed and your surgeon is trying to mimic the size and form of your original breast as closely as possible.

What is the Purpose of Breast Reconstruction?​​​​

Breast reconstruction is most commonly performed following surgery to treat or prevent breast cancer. It’s used to contour breasts and replace damaged or missing tissue by providers. This procedure may also be used to restore symmetry. This means that both breasts are made to be the same size and form. Providers repair breast tissue that develops from congenital anomalies less frequently (birth defects).

It’s natural to mourn the loss of your breast after a mastectomy. Many patients benefit from breast reconstruction surgery to help them cope with their overwhelming emotions and move forward.

COMMON QUESTIONS

The answer to this question is highly dependent on your specific situation. Some people may be able to have their breasts rebuilt right away. If you are having cancer treatment, however, you may need to wait until it is completed before proceeding. Your surgeon will consult with your oncologist to determine whether reconstructive surgery is a suitable option for you.

Please contact our knowledgeable and calming cosmetic surgery staff if you have any questions about the distinctions between breast augmentation and breast reconstructive surgery.

Breast augmentation carries a number of hazards, including the following:

  • Scar tissue that affects the breast implant’s form (capsular contracture)
  • Breast discomfort
  • Infection
  • Changes in breast and nipple sensitivity
  • Changes in implant position
  • Implant rupture or leakage
  • More surgery may be required to correct these issues, either to remove or replace the implants

Based on the following factors, your provider will recommend the most appropriate approach for you:

  • Your age, general health, and way of living.
  • The type of mastectomy or lumpectomy you had, as well as the amount of tissue that remains.
  • Whether you require more breast cancer treatment (such as chemotherapy or radiation).
  • You may find it difficult or impossible to remove a flap from your tummy due to previous procedures. Abdominal surgery is one example.
  • Your objectives and ideal appearance.
