Breast cancer is an emotionally traumatic affair and the woman involved gets her entire breast removed most of the time. The news here is that, women undergoing breast removal at hospitals that are financially weak are most unlikely to opt for a breast reconstruction surgery, according to a new study.
Most women with breast cancer either have a lumpectomy (only malignant tissues are removed and the remaining portions of the breast are spared) or a mastectomy (removal of the entire breast). Post-surgery, they receive chemotherapy to curb the presence of any abnormal cells and minimize the risk of reoccurrence of the cancer.
Physicians recommend that all women undergoing breast removal be given the option of breast reconstruction after surgery as it is linked to a variety of physical as well as mental health benefits, such as improved self-esteem, body image and sexual performance as well as decreased chances of depression, anxiety and mental instability. In spite of surgery, if the woman involved is suffering from stress she can de-stress herself by looking into alternative options available at www.firsteatright.com.
Maximum probability of breast reconstruction exists when the woman involved is young, has private insurance and is hospitalized in a cancer center. There is nothing exclusive or extra in meeting a plastic surgeon to discuss about reconstruction options after surgery, in fact it is standard and necessary.
For maximum benefit, it is recommended that breast reconstruction must be performed at the same time as mastectomy as this allows the surgeons to preserve as much skin as possible, reduce the number of operations and result in a better overall outcome.
