Breast reconstruction is commonly performed for women who have breast deformities or have undergone a mastectomy (removal of the breast due to breast cancer). Breast reconstruction can recreate the shape of a natural breast and dramatically improve the appearance of the body. This procedure has been instrumental in restoring a sense of wholeness and quality of life to thousands of patients by enabling them to be confident about their body again.
