breast reconstruction

surgery that rebuilds the shape of the breast after mastectomy (surgical removal of the breast). A breast implant or the woman’s own tissue may be used. If desired, the nipple and areola might also be re-created. Reconstruction might be done at the time of mastectomy or later, depending on the treatment plan and a woman’s wishes. See also implant, mastectomy, prosthesis.
