Breast Reconstruction Options


There are different ways to repair the breast. Breast reconstruction can be done using a person's own body tissue, breast implants, or a combination of their own tissue and a breast implant.

The method you and your doctor choose depends on several factors, including:

  • Your health and lifestyle
  • Your body type
  • your breast size
  • Your personal preference
  • The amount of remaining tissue and skin
  • Using your own tissue for breast reconstruction / Latissimus Dorsi Flap

One of the methods that allows repair to be made using tissue from one's own breasts is called "latissimus dorsi flap". During this procedure, a piece of skin and muscle from your back or under your arm is taken and brought to the breast area where it is used to repair your breasts. Since the skin and muscle on your back are normally quite thin. This method is sometimes used with a breast implant to give your new breasts a fuller shape. Today, it is the most preferred reconstruction surgery that gives results in the shortest time.

Breast Reconstruction with Implants


During a mastectomy, the surgeon removes skin and breast tissue and makes the breast tissues flat and taut. Before a long-term implant is placed, the breast tissue must be expanded to make room for the implant. This process is called tissue expansion. Typically it can be done in two or a single stage.

Two-Stage Breast Reconstruction


A two-stage breast reconstruction with implants is a very popular option. This procedure may be done at the same time as the mastectomy or at a later stage (late).



Mastectomy is the removal of breast tissue due to cancerous or precancerous cell development. The amount of tissue removed during a mastectomy is not always the same. The size and stage of cancer varies depending on body type and personal preferences.

Breast Reconstruction Timing


Breast reconstruction can be performed during the same operation as a mastectomy. This is called early reconstruction. It can be done weeks, months, or even years after mastectomy. This is also called late reconstruction. Depending on your personal circumstances, you and your doctor can decide which method is best for you.

Early reconstruction: The advantage of having early breast reconstruction is that the breast is repaired during the same operation as a mastectomy. Thus, an operation and recovery period is completed.

Late reconstruction: The advantage of late reconstruction is that it allows the first focus on healing from cancer and regaining strength. Delayed reconstruction allows time to review options and become informed about breast reconstruction and make the right decision.
