Prophylactic Mastectomy and Reconstruction Video Series
Women who decide to have prophylactic mastectomy often choose to have breast reconstruction surgery, either at the same time as prophylactic mastectomy or at a later time.
In our Prophylactic Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction video series, watch as surgeons at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery in New Orleans, La., explain how prophylactic mastectomy can reduce the risk of breast cancer by about 90%. To restore a sense of wholeness, many women decide to have breast reconstruction immediately after prophylactic mastectomy surgery. You also can watch the stories of Lorell, Kerry, and Mandi, who tested positive for a BRCA2 mutation and made the challenging decision to undergo these risk-reducing surgeries.
