Reconstructive breast surgery can restore the shape and appearance of your breasts following lumpectomy or mastectomy. Choosing whether to undergo breast reconstruction is an important, personal decision that each woman must make on her own terms, and the plastic surgeons at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery are here to provide you with the information, education and guidance you need to make this decision.
The rate of breast reconstruction surgery rose by 7 percent in 2014 compared to the previous year, according to a recent report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In fact, the percentage is likely much higher because the ASPS figure accounts only for breast reconstructions performed by ASPS member surgeons, and not all surgeons who perform the procedure. ASPS also reports breast reconstruction has risen 30 percent since the year 2000.
In certain cases, breast cancer patients are not adequately informed of their breast reconstruction options, so an increase in the rate of the procedure is promising. National campaigns, including BRA Day, seek to inform women of their options so they can make decisions about whether to reconstruct their breasts, which can be important to self-confidence and quality of life.
