Women with diagnosis of breast cancer could choose to have simple mastectomy without breast reconstruction. This decision could be due to any of the following reasons:
Whilst a patient may be committed to undergoing simple mastectomy, she would be encouraged to read the information pertaining to breast reconstruction and to look at the photographs of both simple mastectomy and immediate reconstruction. This is to ensure informed decision-making in the very difficult times of having to make life-changing decisions.

Any woman on being told she has breast cancer is bound to be in a state of shock. However, the measured and systematic way in which Miss Roy told me the news, allowed me to absorb it and then helped me to understand there was a future, was so helpful. She “held my hand” through the process and gave me immense confidence. She never gave me false hope, but was reassuring at all times. My scar has healed beautifully, a tribute to her skills and the advice she gave in after care.
Miss Roy is a truly talented and lovely person and someone in whom I have had total confidence, even at my lowest moments. I thank her and I am sure you will.
