Reconstruction (en inglés)


Whatever your age, marital status, sexual activity or orientation, you can't predict how you will react to the loss of a breast. Stop and think: How important is re-creating your breast to you? Can you live with "take-off-and-put-on" alternatives? Do you need surgical breast reconstruction to feel whole again? What about timing?
