What to Expect

Welcome to the "What to Expect" section of the site. Here, you'll find information designed to provide you with an overview of the breast reconstruction surgery process, and what you might expect at different points in your breast reconstruction journey.

Before you start your treatment for breast cancer, or if you are evaluating a prophylactic mastectomy, it's a good idea to gather information about breast reconstruction. If you and your doctor decide you are a candidate, it's important to plan for it. Many women find that having their breast(s) reconstructed makes them feel complete again. Others view reconstructive breast surgery as the logical conclusion to a long and challenging journey through cancer.

You should ask your surgeon about breast reconstruction when you discuss your treatment options. Depending on the type of reconstruction you and your surgeon decide on, you can expect certain results, some of which may impact your normal activities. Ready yourself with this information and discuss your lifestyle and future plans with your surgeon.
