If you are considering breast reconstruction, either after a mastectomy (surgery that removes all breast tissue) or a lumpectomy (surgery that removes part of the breast tissue), talk to your surgeon about it before surgery. In many instances, breast cancer surgery and reconstruction can be done during the same procedure, with your surgical oncologist and the reconstructive surgeon working together. Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center surgeons offer the full range of reconstructive techniques using your own tissues, as well as implants.
