Post Cancer Reconstruction
For many women diagnosed with breast cancer, the possibility of breast removal, or mastectomy, can set off a number of emotions. The loss of a breast, and sometimes both, can in some ways be as traumatic as the diagnosis of cancer itself. Breast reconstructive surgery, which is the process of rebuilding a breast, can help with a woman’s psychological healing. Studies have shown that reconstructive surgery improves the psychological and emotional health of a woman with breast cancer.
