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
