December 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #49: Understanding Bilateral Breast Reconstruction

Tip of the Week

Simply stated bilateral breast reconstruction involves the reconstruction of both of the breasts. This may be necessary in the case of cancer patients who required the removal of breast tissue in both breasts. When a mastectomy is performed on both of the breasts the patient may opt for a bilateral breast reconstruction surgery to replace the breast tissue which was removed and to create a symmetrical appearance.

When a bilateral breast reconstruction is required the reconstruction surgeries may occur simultaneously or at separate times depending on the needs of the patient as well as the preferences of the surgeon. Additionally, the bilateral breast reconstruction may be performed in conjunction with the mastectomy or may be performed in a separate procedure.
