Breast Reconstruction – Timing with Mastectomy – Pennsylvania

Breast Reconstruction – Timing with Mastectomy – Pennsylvania

Published on December 6, 2013 

Timing of a breast reconstruction greatly affects the final outcome of the reconstruction. When performed at the same time as a mastectomy, breast reconstruction is considered “immediate” rather than “delayed.”

There are a number of issues to consider when deciding between immediate or delayed breast reconstruction. Immediate reconstruction is performed or begun at the same time as a mastectomy, whereas a delayed reconstruction is performed after. Immediate reconstruction tends to offer more pleasing results but isn’t available to everyone. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Scott Brenman before you undergo a mastectomy to see if you qualify.
