Auckland Breast Centre
With a rise in the need for breast cancer surgery, the frequency of breast reconstructive surgery has also increased. The aim of the procedure is to recreate the natural contour of a woman’s breast, by using artificial implants or their own body tissue to make a breast mound and nipple. Your surgeon will discuss which method is best for you, and this usually depends on your general health, the size and shape of your breast and the availability of your own tissues for use in reconstruction. Often, more than one surgical procedure is required.
