Breast Reconstruction in Turkey
What is it?
Breast reconstruction is a plastic surgery aimed at rebuilding and reconstructing one or both breasts.

However, it can also be a solution for women who have undergone trauma or accidents. The reconstruction can be performed using a breast implant or patient’s own tissue and skin.
Breast reconstruction can be done immediately at the same time as the tumor is removed or later after treatment is finished. If the treating doctor sees no particular contraindications (for example supplementing the treatment with radiotherapy sessions), the choice of surgery is up to the patient. Immediate reconstruction helps restore body image, but delayed reconstruction sometimes makes mastectomy more accepted by the body.
