Breast Reconstruction Procedure

This procedure is designed for women who underwent breast amputation after breast cancer or other conditions. Newer techniques allow the surgeon to create a breast which is very similar to the natural one. The reconstruction can be done during the amputation procedure, or a few months or even a year afterwards.

There are a number of implants: the most widely used are silicon implants which have silicon surface and filling. They come in different sizes and shapes.

Becker implants are made of a thick silicon surface (35%-50%) and a solution filling. The advantage of this implant is the ability to adjust its shape to the woman`s body. It can also serve as a skin stretcher. There are also implants with a thin silicon surface and a solution filling, which are less used.

The operation can be divided into 2 main categories: (a) a stretcher is inserted, then replaced with an implant; (b) the reconstruction is made from another body tissue.

Ohio Understand

"A buckeye is a gay acorn, right?"

Comedian John Stewart once asked Ohio State University students "A buckeye is a gay acorn, right?" and for most Ohioans even they don't know why their nicknamed after a poisonous fruit. Ohio is commonly referred to as the "Buckeye State" due to the abundance of Buckeye trees in Ohio. The trees grow a nut, which is poisonous to humans and most animals. Natives of Ohio called the nut "Hetuck", or "buck's eye" because of its brown circular shape with a small white oval, which resembled a buck's eye.

The name "Buckeye State" came into prominence during the Log-Cabin and Hard-Cider presidential campaign of 1840 when furniture, cabins, and cider kegs were made from buckeye wood in honor of William Henry Harrison, who was the first Ohioan to become President. In the election versus Martin Van Buren the Whig campaign song contained a reference to the buckeye. A far less poisonous and tasty candy is made to resemble to the buckeye, composed of a peanut butter center partially covered in chocolate. The resemblance is striking, and the candies are delicious.



The most common reconstruction is performed with a stretcher and an implant. After amputation a balloon (stretcher) is inserted under the skin and chest muscles. It has a special valve which can be filled from outside. The implant is being filled gradually with a special solution, until the skin has sufficiently stretched for inserting the implant. It takes another 3-6 months until the breast has acquired its final shape, then the nipple can be reconstructed as well.

Becker implants: sometimes during amputation the skin can be preserved. That would eliminate the need for a stretcher, and a permanent implant (Becker) can be inserted right away.

The breast can also be reconstructed with body tissue from areas with extra skin and fat, like the tummy, buttocks and back. The tissue being removed is called "a flap". Common sites to acquire the flap are the lower tummy and the lotissimus dorsi muscle from the back.
