Unfortunately, many women lose their breasts to breast cancer. For some, a high risk of a recurrence leads to them electing to have a mastectomy. The aim of breast reconstruction is to re-create the breast in these patients, which is an important step in restoring their sense of femininity.
Breast reconstruction, although rewarding and with a high patient satisfaction rate, can be quite a complex procedure. This is one of Dr Safvat’s areas of interest and he frequently performs breast reconstruction surgery.
