During your consultation with Concept Clinic, Dr Schlaudraff will study your options taking into account the surgical choice of lumpectomy or mastectomy and the possible need for adjuvant therapy in chemotherapy or radiotherapy. He will advise you on the most suitable reconstruction procedure for you. Once you have made your decision, you will also need to determine the timing of breast reconstruction : Immediate reconstruction is performed at the same time as your breast cancer surgery. This option prevents you from seeing your body after breast removal and often avoids having to resort to a second major surgical procedure. Delayed reconstruction is performed after your breast cancer surgery. This method gives you time to learn about the different options to feel completely at ease with your choice. If you wish, breast reconstruction may be delayed for several months or even several years after your breast cancer surgery.
