Breast reconstruction with an implant after mastectomy for breast cancer usually requires two-stages or requires multi-step inflation of implant-expander after the first surgery.
One-stage implant reconstruction allows for reconstruction of the breast mound in selected group of patients in one operation. This approach is best suited for patients with good preservation of the breast skin after mastectomy. A permanent implant is inserted immediately following the mastectomy, obviating the need for the initial placement of a tissue expander and subsequent expansion process.
The breast reconstruction could be performed using your body tissue and whether you are eligible for that would be assessed by our surgeon.
The suitability for implant reconstruction would be assessed by your surgeon and the likely outcomes would be discussed

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.
