Breast Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction

Reconstructive surgery after complete removal of the tumour is a rather complex and special process. A special skill is needed so that after the operation, the woman has enough tissue left so that the breast reconstruction is successful. Surgeons at a leading Israeli clinic Tel Aviv Medical Clinichave special skills and professionalism, they use only high-quality implants.

Reconstruction is performed during the same surgical intervention as a mastectomy. However, it is offered only in those cases when after the operation, radiation therapy sessions are not provided. Radiation therapy increases the risk of complications and reverses recovery outcomes. In most cases, direct reconstruction is performed using a prosthesis. 

Preparation for the procedure 

In order to avoid surprises, the patient is carefully examined before mammoplasty. So be prepared to spend several hours of your time. These are general clinical studies - chest x-ray, ECG, tests - as before any operation, plus mammalogical diagnostics - mammography, ultrasound, consultations of narrow specialists and other studies according to indications. Our doctors must make sure that the patient has no contraindications to breast correction.

Carrying out the procedure

Reconstructive operations performed by leading specialists in plastic surgery allow you to completely restore the shape of the mammary gland. Plastic reconstruction operations are possible using both artificial implants and patient’s tissues. In some cases, we offer women combined reconstruction using both techniques.

Experts do not recommend performing an operation in the following cases: 

  • Radiation therapy planned or performed
  • Cancer recurrence
  • Exacerbation of chronic diseases Infectious processes and fever
  • Uncompensated diabetes mellitus
