Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure that is designed to restore the shape, size, and outcome of the breast after a mastectomy or other breast surgery. The procedure can be performed using a variety of techniques, including breast implants, tissue flaps, and a combination of both.

The most common technique used in breast reconstruction is the use of breast implants. During this procedure, an implant is inserted behind the remaining breast tissue or chest muscle to restore the shape and size of the breast.

Tissue flap reconstruction, on the other hand, uses tissue from other parts of the body, such as the abdomen, back, or thigh, to rebuild the breast. The tissue is transferred to the chest and shaped to create a new breast. This method is considered a more complex procedure and it requires a longer recovery period.

The reconstruction procedure can be done at the same time as the mastectomy or it can be delayed. The decision on when to do the reconstruction will be based on the patient’s individual needs and circumstances.

Reconstruction surgery is a major procedure that carries some risks and potential complications. It is important for patients to have realistic expectations and to understand that the results may not be perfect and that multiple surgeries may be needed to achieve the desired outcome.

At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, located in Melbourne, our team of trained and experienced cosmetic doctors are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality care and results. We understand that every patient is unique, and we work closely with each individual to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals.

Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few weeks after surgery. However, there are a few things you should avoid during your recovery, including:

-Strenuous activity or exercise

-Lifting anything heavier than 10 pounds

-Drinking alcohol

-Smoking

You should also avoid wearing underwire bras or tight clothing during your recovery. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on when you can resume these activities.

 

It can take several months for breasts to settle after reconstruction surgery. The breasts may feel hard, tight, and uncomfortable during this time. The skin may also be sensitive and tender. It is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions during this time to ensure proper healing.

 

The answer to this question may depend on the type of reconstruction surgery that is performed. For example, if skin and muscle are taken from another area of the body to create a new breast, there is a chance that the new breast will have a sensation. However, if an implant is used, there is a lower chance that the breast will have a sensation.

 

No, reconstructed breasts are not hard. They should feel very similar to your natural breasts. The skin on your reconstructed breasts may be thinner than your natural breasts, but the overall feel should be similar.

 

You will likely be able to lift your arms above your head within a few weeks after surgery, but your surgeon will give you specific instructions about when you can resume normal activities.

 

Most people can sleep on their side six weeks after surgery, but you may need to wait longer if your surgeon recommends it. Sleeping on your side will help your breasts heal and reduce the risk of them getting infected.



 

No, breast reconstruction is not major surgery. It is usually done as an outpatient procedure, which means you won’t have to stay in the hospital overnight.



 

There are many reasons why breast reconstruction can be painful. First, the surgery itself is often quite invasive, meaning that there is a lot of cutting and stitching involved. Additionally, the area around the breast is often very sensitive, so any kind of movement can be quite painful. Finally, the recovery process can be quite long and difficult, which can lead to a lot of pain and discomfort.

 

There are several types of breast reconstruction, and the safest option depends on the individual patient. The most common type of reconstruction is done with implants, and this can be done with either silicone or saline implants. Another option is to use your tissue, which can be taken from another part of your body or a donor. This is typically considered to be the safest option, as there is no risk of implant rupture or rejection. Your doctor will be able to help you decide which option is best for you based on your individual needs and preferences.

 

 Most drains are removed within 7 to 10 days after surgery.

 

You should sleep on your back with your head elevated on pillows for the first few nights after surgery. After that, you can sleep in any position that is comfortable for you.



 

After a mastectomy and reconstruction, drains are typically left in for 1-2 weeks. This allows for any fluid build-up to be drained and helps to reduce the risk of infection.

 

Most patients can walk around the house on the day of surgery, but you will need help. You will have drains in place that will need to be emptied every few hours. Once the drains are removed, you will be able to walk on your own.

 

Some patients choose to wear a compression garment after surgery to help with swelling. Your surgeon will let you know if this is recommended for you. You may also need to wear a special bra. Your surgeon will tell you when you can start wearing a regular bra.

 

This will depend on the individual case, but typically, breast reconstruction will require multiple surgeries. The first surgery is typically to create a new breast mound, and subsequent surgeries may be required to refine the shape, size, and symmetry of the new breast. Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors have a team of experienced surgeons who specialise in breast reconstruction, and they will work with you to ensure that you get the best possible results.

 

Necrosis is a serious complication that can occur after breast reconstruction surgery. There are several things that you can do to help prevent necrosis, including:

-Wearing a compression garment after surgery

-Elevating your head and shoulders

-Using ice packs

-Avoiding smoking

-eating a healthy diet 

-Exercising regularly

If you are at risk for necrosis or have any concerns, be sure to talk to your doctor before surgery.

 

The first week after breast reconstruction is typically when the majority of the swelling and bruising will occur. It is important to keep the surgical area clean and dry to prevent infection. You will likely have several follow-up appointments with your surgeon to check on your progress and to remove any drains that may have been placed during surgery.

 

The most common breast reconstruction surgery is pedicle flap surgery. This surgery involves taking skin, fat, and muscle from the chest wall and moving it to the breast area. Pedicle flap surgery is often used in conjunction with a breast implant.



Surgical procedures such as breast reconstruction is a very intricate process. Thus, before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. It is advisable that a patient knows the risks before proceeding with plastic surgery. This is to ensure that the patient is aware of what may happen after the procedure. You may consult with breast plastic surgeons or your trusted cosmetic doctor in Melbourne, Australia.
