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.

Planing on having breast reconstruction procedure in Spain?
Here is some General Information about Spain:

Spain By train
Renfe [3] is the Spanish national rail carrier. Long-distance trains always get in time, but be aware that short-distance trains (called Cercan?as) can bear long delays, from ten to twenty minutes, and especially in the Barcelona area. To be safe, always take the train before the one you need.

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.

Spain breast reconstruction - News update:
In response to public reports suggesting a causal link between a BOTOX(R) Cosmetic treatment in 2003 and a fatality, Allergan, Inc. (NYSE:AGN) provided further assurance to patients and the public about BOTOX(R) Cosmetic and BOTOX(R) (Botulinum Toxin Type A). On January 23, Public Citizen, an advocacy group founded by Ralph Nader, filed a petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requesting labeling changes for botulinum toxins marketed in the United States.

This procedure can be complicated due to implant infection, a contraction of a surface of an implant, silicon leaks and anesthetic complications.

You`ll need to stay in hospital 2-7 days after the surgery, while you may feel pain and weakness for a week or two. Complete recovery may take up to 6 weeks, depending on the surgery. You may have an unusual sensation in the breast that would usually disappear over time. In most cases there could be a slight asymmetry between the breasts, however, most women report a significant improvement in their social life and self esteem.

What are the risks associated with Breast Reconstruction?
If not done by skilled professionals, there are many risks involved in this procedure. According to the surgeons in Spain(ES), one of the main risks involved is the rejection of the artificial implant by the body. There are also other related risks like infection, bleeding, unexpected scarring and adverse reaction to anesthesia. Thus, it is always recommended to choose the right cosmetic surgeon to do the job.
