Read on to learn about the different breast reconstruction options and what should be taken into consideration before surgery.
When it comes to breast reconstruction, there are three options to choose from, including reconstruction using implants, reconstruction using your own tissue (autologous reconstruction), or reconstruction using a combination of implants and autologous tissue.
