The diagnosis of breast cancer is one of the most life-changing events a woman may face. Every woman copes with the diagnosis differently and among the many decisions that need to be made in treatment includes the decision on whether or not to undergo breast reconstruction. Because of the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 insurance companies are required to cover the entirety of breast reconstruction regardless of the type of reconstruction performed as well as any procedures that may need to be done to the opposite breast like breast reduction or a breast lift to maintain or restore symmetry.
Women facing breast cancer currently have many options in breast reconstruction, including implant reconstruction, local muscle flap reconstructions (TRAM or Latissmus Flaps), fat transfer reconstructions and free tissue transfer reconstructions. The multitude of options may seem very confusing and each choice certainly leads to a multitude of questions most importantly which option may be best for you? Dr. Sanderson will patiently guide you through the advantages and disadvantages of each choice and depending on your personal preference, body type and treatment plan and will help you choose the best reconstructive option for you.
