After losing one or both breasts to mastectomy due to breast cancer, many women find prosthetic breasts uncomfortable and unsatisfactory. At the same time, they do not want to sacrifice their feminine figures because of the effects of cancer. Breast reconstruction is an excellent option for these women. This procedure uses the body’s own tissue, along with a breast implant, to recreate the look and feel of a natural breast. Several techniques may be used to perform this operation. We recommend that you consult with Dr. Gallegos at an in-office consultation to learn more about this procedure and the financing options available using your insurance.
