BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

Breast reconstructionPeople who want to know about the cosmetic surgery of breast reconstruction in Malaga and the Costa del Sol, can receive basic information on this website of Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon.

What is a breast reconstruction?

New techniques and medical materials allow the Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon to create a breast very similar in shape, texture and characteristics to a breast which may have been removed due to breast cancer or another disease (mastectomy).

The quality of life of the patient is greatly improved with a breast reconstruction, providing emotional satisfaction with the restoration of body image, as it creates a natural appearance to the whole breast and to the areola and nipple. This plastic surgery is done by filling the hollow and correcting the deformity of the thorax. This eliminates the need for the use of external prosthesis and enables the patient to wear swimwear and more revealing clothing.

Women who need to undergo a mastectomy should be informed of all the possibilities of reconstruction from when they receive the diagnosis of breast cancer. They should be made aware that in all cases reconstruction of the breast is possible after the tumour has been removed. With the patient having this information when they are diagnosed and choosing to have the reconstruction surgery at the point of amputation, they benefit psychologically by avoiding the contemplation of an amputated breast. However, in some cases, reconstruction can or should be postponed

Immediate breast reconstruction requires close collaboration between the surgeon removing the breast and the plastic surgeon, as well as the oncologist, all of whom need to coordinate in order to develop a strategy which comes together to produce the best result possible.

It should be noted that the breast reconstruction has no effect on the disease of the breast, nor does it interfere with the treatment prescribed or with subsequent check-ups.

Breast reconstruction: How is it done?

Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, plastic and cosmetic surgeon, has various techniques for reconstructing the breast, such as cutaneous expansion which stretches the skin and subsequently sees the insertion of an implant, or techniques which use the patient’s own tissue to create a natural breast and consist in the transplanting or grafting of tissues from other parts of the body.

In the vast majority of mastectomized patients, breast reconstruction represents an absolute improvement in image. The patient seeing their complete body again restores a psychological balance which in many cases they may have lost, which is why it is worth noting that currently breast reconstruction surgery is one of the most gratifying surgical procedures for patients.

However, remember that each breast reconstruction case and each patient may vary, and therefore this information should be taken purely as a general guide and explanation. It should not be considered a replacement of the detailed information that the plastic surgeon Dr. Ruiz Ruiz will provide during the personal consultation and evaluation with her.
