Who Can Get Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction?
Many women may seek natural tissue flap reconstruction after undergoing a mastectomy on one or both breasts. Many women want their breasts to have a natural, balanced appearance in certain types of clothing, which is often more possible using tissue flaps than other breast reconstructive options.
Though you notice some differences between the natural and reconstructive breast tissue, Dr. Sadeghi’s techniques achieve a very natural look even when wearing a bra or bathing suit.
How Long Is Recovery From Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction?
Though your results will be visible immediately after your surgery, it’s important to give yourself enough time to heal. You’ll notice some swelling for the first week following the procedure. This is normal. As the swelling subsides, your new breast tissue will slowly stretch, and the result will be full and natural.
