Breast Reconstruction “What are the pros and cons?”

26th October 2017, 7-8pm (AEDT)

For many women, breasts symbolise femininity, motherhood and sexual attractiveness. Losing part or all of a breast may affect a woman’s body image or confidence. Before or after a mastectomy, you may think about having a breast reconstruction. Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure used to create a permanent breast using your own tissue and skin, and/or an implant. It can be done or started at the time of the mastectomy (immediate reconstruction) or at a later stage (delayed reconstruction). This can be months or years later. We will be discussing the pros and cons of having a breast reconstruction and when the best time for you to do this might be.
