Tissue Flap Surgery for Breast Reconstruction
Why It Is Done
Tissue flap surgery is usually done to restore the appearance of a breast after mastectomy. It may also be done for women who have problems with breast development.
Breast reconstruction may help a woman feel better about her appearance. Some women say it helps them feel better about their bodies, more alive, feminine, and sexual—and happier about life.
