ABOUT BREAST RECONSTRUCTION IN TURKEY

.
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY IS USUALLY DONE IN STAGES, WITH INITIAL SURGERY FOCUSING ON CREATING THE SHAPE OF THE BREAST USING A TISSUE EXPANDER OR IMPLANT. THIS MAY BE FOLLOWED BY ADDITIONAL SURGERIES TO REFINE THE SHAPE OF THE RECONSTRUCTED BREAST AND ADD THE NIPPLE AND AREOLA. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY IS NOT ALWAYS NECESSARY OR DESIRED BY EVERY WOMAN WHO HAS HAD A MASTECTOMY. SOME WOMEN MAY CHOOSE NOT TO UNDERGO RECONSTRUCTION AND INSTEAD OPT FOR PROSTHETIC BREAST FORMS OR SIMPLY EMBRACE THEIR NEW BODY SHAPE. OVERALL, BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY CAN BE A GREAT OPTION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE UNDERGONE MASTECTOMY AND WISH TO RESTORE THEIR BODY IMAGE AND SELF-CONFIDENCE. IT IS A PERSONAL DECISION THAT SHOULD BE MADE AFTER CAREFUL CONSIDERATION AND CONSULTATION WITH A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.
