Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures for women who undergo breast removal (mastectomy).
New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast.
Frequently, reconstruction is possible immediately following a mastectomy, so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all.
If you or a loved one want more information about breast reconstruction, please call Dr. Renato Saltz at Saltz Plastic Surgery at (801) 274-9500.
