For individuals undergoing or who have recently undergone a mastectomy, breast reconstruction is a very important part of recovery and is just as personal as your treatment plan. There are several breast reconstruction methods available to you, and they are all available through the Virtua Cancer Program.
The program’s surgeons are board-certified and nationally-recognized cancer reconstruction physicians who specialize in restoring the appearance and function for patients with breast cancer and other types of cancers.
Autologous reconstruction that is commonly used to reconstruct the breast is also used for other types of cancers too. Sometimes during cancer treatment, tissue can be affected by radiation or removed during surgery. Depending on the treatment, reconstructive surgery can help patients regain function. It can also help a patient regain his/her pre-cancer appearance.
Here are some examples of how reconstructive surgery can be used:
Ideally, reconstruction is done in conjunction with cancer treatment. But if you’ve been treated and never underwent reconstruction, it may not be too late. Call the Virtua Cancer Program for Advanced Breast and Reconstructive Surgery at (856) 291-8910 for a consultation.
Most times, your insurance will cover the cost of reconstruction. Consult your insurance company to be sure.
