With some breast reconstructions further surgical procedures may be required. This can be for several reasons.
- To complete the aesthetics of the reconstructed breast.
- To obtain symmetry with the remaining breast
The procedures are secondary to the main reconstructive surgery. As with all surgery there are pros and cons, and as a secondary operation it would be up to the patient to decide if they wish to have this done. All are to obtain the best possible outcome aesthetically between the reconstructed and the remaining breast.
