Choosing to undergo a mastectomy is a life-altering decision. You are going to change the appearance of your body. It’s a choice that is intended to save your life and give you peace of mind. Whether you are having your breasts removed to get rid of cancer or it’s a preventative move to reduce your risk of cancer, you are going to have to face the new you after your procedure. As you move forward with this important decision, you also need to think about what you will do next. You can leave your chest alone following your procedure and live without breasts. You can wear prosthetic breasts. As a final alternative, you can take advantage of breast reconstruction to allow your breasts to make a comeback.

Feel Like Nothing Has Changed

Breast reconstruction after a mastectomy allows you to look and feel like yourself again. You won’t feel as self-conscious about your bust. Whether you are alone or with someone else, you won’t have to worry that everyone is staring at you. You are still the same person no matter what. Choose breast reconstruction and your life can carry on as usual.

Wear What You Want to Wear

Some clothing will not fit without cleavage. Instead of getting rid of half of your old wardrobe because it won’t look right, think about breast reconstruction instead. With this procedure, your clothes will still fit the way that they should.

Enjoy Permanent Results

While prosthetic breasts can create the illusion of having breasts again, you’ll take them off at the end of the day. It can be traumatic to continue to see yourself without your breasts. Breast reconstruction is more convenient and it will last.
