Last year, breast reconstruction procedures were up 4 percent from 2012. That's according to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In 2013, ASPS member surgeons performed 95,589 breast reconstructions, compared to 91,655 in 2012. And those are only the procedures performed by ASPS surgeons, meaning the actual number of total breast reconstruction surgeries performed was probably much greater.
Today, there are many techniques and options available to women interested in reconstructing their breasts after cancer surgery, with optimally natural-looking results. Some of these options include:
- Implant-based breast reconstruction
- Autologous reconstruction
- Nipple reconstruction
- Areola pigmentation
The only way to know if these options will work for you is to meet with our experienced plastic surgeons. We want you to know all of your options for restoring your breasts and to empower you to make the decisions that will meet your expectations and goals.
