Options and considerations in the timing of breast reconstruction after mastectomy
Breast reconstruction can be done at different times, depending on what works best for your situation:. At the same time as mastectomy surgery. This is called immediate reconstruction. As soon as the breast is removed by the breast cancer surgeon, the plastic surgeon reconstructs the breast either with tissue from another location on your body or with an implant and sometimes both.
