Delayed breast reconstruction


A considerable number of women treated for breast cancer still undergo traditional mastectomy surgery when the affected breast is removed along with the skin, nipple and areola. After such a procedure, at the place of the surgery the chest is flat and has a post-operative scar.
Surgical breast reconstruction is a modern, comfortable and natural solution. A sufficient amount of skin must be obtained and the breast shape and internal structure must be reconstructed.


The decision on your surgery is taken during a pre-operative visit when a doctor assesses your eligibility. At the visit the doctor also chooses the treatment and orders necessary tests. The decision is made on the basis of test results and your general condition. Then a convenient date is selected.

Treatment options:

Delayed breast reconstruction with a tissue expander and implants

Such reconstruction has two stages:
- in the first stage a tissue expander is inserted under the chest wall for a multi-stage process of gentle tissue stretching to create space for the implant.
- in the second stage the tissue expander is replaced with an implant and the final shape of the reconstructed breast is created.
The first stage of the procedure lasts for about 1 hour. The second stage lasts for 1.5 to 2 hours.

Delayed autologous breast reconstruction

The removed breast is reconstructed from the patient’s own tissue from the lower abdomen (TRAM) or the back (LD). The complex reconstruction process is performed as a one-stage procedure.
The TRAM procedure lasts for about 3 to 4 hours. The LD procedure lasts for about 2 to 2.5 hours.
