Breast Reconstruction Surgery in Sydney

Breast Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction is a surgery which aims to restore and recreate the shape of a natural breast. It is a physically and mentally rewarding procedure for women who have lost their breast due to a medical condition. This procedure is mainly performed by a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon who is highly trained in reconstructive and aesthetic procedures. 

Breast Reconstruction can be performed either as an immediate or a delayed procedure. Both procedures can be performed using prosthetic or autologous tissue flaps. Breast reconstruction with autologous tissue flaps, usually obtained from the abdomen remains as the gold standard procedure as it creates more natural looking breasts with higher women’s satisfaction rate. It also provides long-lasting results. However, many other factors which include clinical factors and patients’ personal preference will determine the choice of surgery performed. A personalized consultation with Dr Frank Hsieh is required to identify the type of surgery which would best meet your needs.
