At what stage should I see a plastic surgeon about breast reconstruction?

If possible, the best time to make your appointment with a Specialist Plastic Surgeon is before a mastectomy. Dependent on your age and state of health, you may require several pre-operative tests to determine your suitability for surgery.

In some cases, the breast reconstruction may be performed in conjunction with a mastectomy operation, although this is only advisable if the reconstruction will not interfere with any subsequent breast treatments. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will recommend the most suitable option for you.

If you have already had a mastectomy, it is not too late to consider breast reconstruction surgery. Contact us to request a consultation with our cosmetic breast nurse or Specialist Plastic Surgeon who will discuss your situation and the options available for you.
