An Overview of What Is Breast Reconstruction?

Breast reconstruction surgery is your path to reclaiming the allure and symmetry of your breasts after a mastectomy. It’s a highly recommended option for individuals who have faced mastectomy, either due to cancer and chemotherapy or as a preventive measure. Don’t confuse it with breast augmentation; breast reconstruction is a distinct journey.

In the art of breast reconstruction, we expertly rebuild what has been lost. The process involves strategically using expanders to prepare your remaining breast tissue, creating the ideal canvas for implant placement. Moreover, we pay meticulous attention to the recreation of your nipples and areola, ensuring a remarkably natural look.

At Bizrahmed, we’re dedicated to guiding you on this transformative path with expertise and care.

Understanding the Types of Breast Reconstruction

Recovery Timelines:

At Bizrahmed, our breast reconstruction surgery is tailored to ensure your experience is as seamless as possible. The duration and techniques used vary to meet your unique needs.

  • Autologous Fat Transfer: This approach takes approximately 2 hours for mastectomy and an additional 6 to 12 hours for reconstruction. It yields natural and enduring results using your own tissues.
  • Implant Reconstruction: A quicker alternative, spanning around 3 to 4 hours, including preparation and anaesthesia. It offers a shorter recovery time compared to fat transfer.
  • Nipple Transplant or Graft: If included, it extends the procedure by 3-4 hours.
  • General Anaesthesia: Both procedures are performed under the care of general anaesthesia.
  • Implant Reconstruction Process: A tissue expander gently stretches the breast skin, gradually introducing saline or silicone gels for the desired reconstruction. In some cases, implants are placed directly without expanders. The use of the Acellular Dermal Matrix is increasingly common for implant-based reconstruction.
  • Autologous Fat Transfer: The technique involves sculpting using your own tissues, often harvested from the abdomen. A combination of implants and autologous tissues may be recommended in specific situations to address unique needs.
  • Pain relief typically within 7-10 days.
  • Complete inflammation reduction usually occurs within eight weeks.
  • Return to work is possible after four weeks.
  • Cessation of compression garments and tubes within two weeks.

What to Expect and How to Cope with Mastectomy Reconstruction Recovery

Your journey through the recovery process is guided by experience, care, and a commitment to your well-being. Learn what lies ahead and discover essential coping strategies for a smoother, more confident recovery.

Immediate Post-Surgery Discomfort

It’s natural to experience pain, discomfort, and soreness following surgery. This phase typically endures for about a week, during which specific precautions are essential for a successful recovery.

Timely Discharge and Fluid Management

 

Your surgeon’s expertise ensures you are typically discharged within a few days post-surgery once your recovery rate meets our stringent standards. Compression garments and drainage are employed to facilitate fluid removal, aiding the healing process.

Easing Inflammation

It’s typically expected that the complete subsiding of inflammation will occur in about eight weeks.

Gradual Resumption of Activities

You can generally begin reintroducing light exercises around 4-5 weeks after breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.

Different Approaches: Tailored Healing

Implant reconstruction often offers a faster healing timeline than autologous fat transfer. The healing process encompasses both breast and donor incision sites, with complete tissue healing and scar fading occurring over the course of a year. While some sensations may gradually return, it may be minimal.

Prioritising Mental Health

Emphasising the holistic well-being of our patients, we recommend considering therapy options to support your mental health during the recovery phase. At Bizrahmed, we’re dedicated to your physical and emotional wellness.

COMMON TOPICS

During Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Breast reconstruction surgery takes one to six hours to complete, depending on the type of surgery you have been selected for. But the preparation takes around two hours. Autologous Fat transplant uses tissues from your inner thighs, buttocks, abdomen and upper back. The approximate time duration for the entire process is about 2 hours for the mastectomy, followed by another six to twelve hours for the reconstruction procedure. It yields more natural-looking results, lasting lifelong as you do not need to change them after some time.

 

On the other hand, reconstruction through implants is quicker and gets over in three to four hours, with around two hours taken for the preparation and the anaesthetics to set in. Implant reconstruction has a shorter downtime than fat transfer, with a faster healing time. In either of these procedures, a nipple transplant or graft, if done sidewise, takes another 3-4 hours.

 

As breast reconstruction surgery is an invasive procedure, it is performed under general anaesthesia. In breast implant reconstruction, the breast skin is stretched with a tissue expander inside the breast. After a week, saline or silicone gels are placed inside, with repeat procedures extending for the next ten weeks for the desired reconstruction. After a few months, after the tissue has healed, the expander is removed, and implants are placed.

 

Sometimes implants are placed directly in the breast during mastectomy reconstruction without using any expanders. The Acellular Dermal Matrix has been increasingly used for implant-based breast reconstruction. Autologous Fat Transplant uses fat from your body parts for reconstruction surgery. Usually, abdominal fat is the first choice for the plastic surgeon. But tissues are taken from the thighs and buttocks in the case of women with prior abdominal surgery or without enough abdominal fat.

 

In some cases, implants and autologous tissues are used together. This procedure mode is preferred when there isn’t enough skin left after mastectomy for expansion when tissue via fat transfer is used to place the implant inside the breast. It is natural for you to feel anxious while reading about the procedure. We recommend booking a consultation with an expert surgeon at Bizrahmed to clarify your doubts regarding breast reconstruction surgery.

 

It takes around 7-10 days for the pain to subside and approximately 8 weeks for the inflammation to diminish completely. You can rejoin work after 4 weeks and stop wearing compression garments and tubes 2 weeks after the surgery. But complete healing of the tissues and the removal of the surgical scars takes more than a year, with even more time for some of the breast sensations to return.

Mastectomy Reconstruction Recovery

After surgery, there will be pain, discomfort, and soreness. This will persist for a week, during which you must restrict your movement and take other precautions for a successful recovery.

 

You will be discharged within a few days post-surgery once the surgeon is satisfied with your recovery rate. Compression garments must wear drains to remove extra fluid from the surgery site while it heals. It is believed that it was taken around 8 weeks for the inflammation to subside completely. Light exercises can be started 4-5 weeks post-breast reconstruction after mastectomy.

 

Implant reconstruction heals faster than autologous fat transplant, in which case the healing of the breast incision and donor incision sites must be considered. The tissues will completely heal, and the scars to fade completely in one year. There may not be any sensation in your breasts post-reconstruction. Some feelings may return after some years, but they will be minimal. While recovering from breast reconstruction after mastectomy, it is recommended to go for therapy for mental health and depression.

FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS

How long does it take to recover from breast reconstruction surgery?

It takes around 7-10 days for the pain to subside and approximately 8 weeks for the inflammation to diminish completely. You can rejoin work after 4 weeks and stop wearing compression garments and tubes 2 weeks after the surgery. But complete healing of the tissues and the removal of the surgical scars takes more than a year, with even more time for some of the breast sensations to return.

Does a mastectomy include reconstruction?

In immediate reconstruction, the mastectomy and the reconstruction procedures are performed one after the other. Immediate reconstruction is usually preferred in women in the first and second stages of breast cancer who are undergoing mastectomy as a prophylactic measure and in whom removal of implants for chemo treatments will not be required.

What does breast reconstruction involve?

Breast reconstruction involves using implants or tissues from your body to reconstruct the breasts. While implants involve using an expander followed by insertion of implants, fat transfer uses fat from your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs to be used in breast reconstruction. Either of these processes is done in phases, and it takes a long time to see the results post-surgery.

Is breast reconstruction the same as implants?

Implants are only a part of breast reconstruction. Implants are silicone devices filled with silicone or saline solution to be fitted inside the breasts. Implants are used in breast augmentation to enhance the size of the existing breasts or, in reconstruction cases, to reconstruct breasts after post-mastectomy. Apart from implants, tissues from your body can also be used for reconstruction.

Is breast reconstruction suitable for me?

Breast reconstruction is appropriate for many mastectomy patients. Factors like overall health, cancer treatment, and personal preferences are considered.

What types of reconstruction are available?

Common options include implant-based and autologous tissue reconstruction. The choice depends on factors such as your body type and cancer treatment.

Are the results permanent?

Breast reconstruction aims to provide lasting results. However, some adjustments or further procedures may be needed over time due to changes in the body or personal preferences.
