Improving self image after breast reconstruction
Breast reconstruction (after mastectomy or independent from it) is a physical and psychical reward for women who lost one or both breasts because of cancer or other condition. Creating a new breast can significantly improve image and self trust, but also the quality of life. After breast reconstruction, the breast will have a relatively natural aspect, but a reconstructed breast will never have the sensibility of a natural one. When taking the decision for breast reconstruction, documentation is necessary, but also psychical preparation for accepting physical and emotional implications.
