Breast Reconstruction Plastic Surgery – Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nevada
The first question you should ask if you are considering breast reconstruction after a diagnosis of breast cancer is: “Is breast reconstruction right for me?” You may find this question isn’t easy to answer, since you will have to make many decisions about the options available. The more educated and informed you are about the options, however, the less difficult it will be to come to your decision.
Some women are afraid that should their breast cancer return, it would be harder to detect the tumor through a reconstructed breast than through a mastectomy scar. There is no need to fear difficulties with cancer detection, however. Current evidence indicates that it is not more difficult to find and treat cancer through a reconstructed breast.
The main objective of Murphy Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. James E. Murphy is to create the most natural-looking breast possible for a woman who has had her breast removed due to cancer or other disease. Whether you choose reconstruction immediately following your mastectomy or wait, know that it may greatly improve your appearance and self-confidence.
