Breast reconstruction

Primary breast reconstruction is a solution for patients at an early stage of the disease. At the same time with the intervention that provides surgical treatment, breast reconstruction is performed. Depending on the quality of the skin, the size of the breast and the nature of the tumor, this procedure is most often performed by placing an implant under the chest wall muscle, with additional reconstructive surgery to preserve the shape and better simulate the healthy breast.

Sometimes it is necessary to make some corrections to the healthy breast in order to achieve chest symmetry. Such patients have no sense of breast loss. This helps them recover more easily and quickly. Breast reconstruction does not affect the course and prognosis of the disease and does not interfere with its further surveillance.

Secondary breast reconstruction is a surgical intervention reserved for all patients who already had breast tissue removed. This procedure can be performed months and even years after the oncological treatment. All patients in whom the underlying disease did not spread, who are motivated to return to a quality life are candidates for this intervention. There are several types of breast reconstruction in the period after the removal of the breast. Depending on the additional oncological treatment, the quality of the skin and the size of the breast, different procedures are performed. Obviously, this is done according to the patient’s wishes and their body constitution.

The simplest procedure is breast reconstruction using temporary or permanent prosthetic implants, with or without reconstruction of the healthy breast.

This procedure is comfortable for patients, it takes a relatively short time and the postoperative course is not difficult; thus, patients can start their new lives after just two weeks. It is recommended to use anatomically shaped endoprostheses as these better simulate the natural breast.

Patients can also undergo delayed breast reconstruction using their own tissue. The broad muscle of the back or the front abdominal muscle are usually used, together with part of the skin from that region. These interventions are reserved for patients who underwent radiation treatments to the chest wall and those who have a voluminous healthy breast.

Also, the patient’s wish not to use prosthetic implants in the reconstruction is taken into account. Reconstructions performed using the patient’s own tissue are followed by a slightly longer postoperative recovery, but long-term cosmetic results are improved.

Patients who also had the nipple removed at the previous surgical intervention, undergo the reconstruction after 3 to 6 months.

The procedure is very simple. A free transplant is taken from the opposite nipple or from pigmented parts of the body. It is performed under local anaesthesia and the recovery is rapid.
