Breast cancer is an illness that, unfortunately, many women across the world face. The journey through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery is intensely personal and emotional. A significant part of this journey for some women is the decision to undergo a mastectomy—a surgery that removes one or both breasts. It’s a life-altering decision, and every woman must make the choice that feels right for her. But for those who wish to reclaim their silhouette post-mastectomy, breast reconstruction offers a beacon of hope.

Why Choose Breast Reconstruction?

The decision to undergo breast reconstruction is deeply personal. While many women find comfort and confidence in their post-mastectomy bodies without further surgical intervention, others seek reconstruction to regain a sense of normalcy, femininity, and confidence.

Dr. Aviva Preminger, a renowned plastic surgeon in New York City, believes in empowering women to make the best choice for their bodies.

“Every woman’s journey with breast cancer is unique, and so are her needs and desires post-treatment. Breast reconstruction is not about vanity—it’s about choice, and it’s about feeling like oneself again.”

A Surge in Breast Augmentation and Reconstruction Procedures

Breast augmentation remains a popular choice for many women, not just those recovering from breast cancer. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that in 2018, there was a significant increase in the number of breast augmentation surgeries. This rise indicates the importance of breast aesthetics in modern society and the confidence it can instill in women.

However, for those who’ve experienced breast cancer, breast reconstruction isn’t merely about aesthetics. It’s about regaining a sense of self, reclaiming one’s body after illness, and moving forward with resilience.

Understanding Your Breast Reconstruction Options with Dr. Preminger

At Preminger Plastic Surgery, patients have a range of choices when it comes to breast reconstruction, ensuring each woman can select an option that best suits her desires and needs.

  • Gummy Bear Implants: These are form-stable implants that maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken. They have a thicker consistency than traditional silicone implants, offering a more natural feel.
  • Silicone Implants: A popular choice, silicone implants provide a natural look and feel. They are filled with a silicone gel and come in various shapes and sizes to cater to individual preferences.
  • Saline Implants: These implants are filled with sterile salt water. They can be adjusted more easily than silicone implants, and any leaks are naturally absorbed by the body.

Breast reconstruction post-mastectomy is a choice that every woman should be empowered to make based on her personal feelings and needs. If you or a loved one is considering breast reconstruction in Manhattan, Dr. Aviva Preminger and her dedicated team at Preminger Plastic Surgery are ready to offer guidance, support, and expertise to help you regain your confidence and move forward with strength.
