Breast reconstruction basics
When you have a mastectomy, you lose breast tissue, some skin, and possibly your nipple and areola. Breast reconstruction results have improved over the years. While your plastic surgeon can’t give you the same breast you had prior to your mastectomy, he or she may be able to give you a reasonable likeness of your premastectomy breast.
Immediate or delayed reconstructive surgery
Will you begin your reconstruction surgery immediately—at the time of your mastectomy—or will you delay your reconstruction surgery until after you have healed?
Advantages
Disadvantages
Advantages
Immediate reconstruction
Eliminates an operation since it’s performed at the same time as the mastectomy.
Delayed reconstruction
Provides time to treat and evaluate the cancer. Some women may need radiation after mastectomy, which can cause problems like delayed healing and scarring.

Provides time to quit smoking and/or lose or gain weight. Smoking, being overweight or too thin can cause problems with your reconstruction.
Disadvantages
Immediate reconstruction
Requires a longer surgery.
Delayed reconstruction
Requires an additional operation.

Creates a time where you will have the appearance of no breast(s).

Implant-based breast reconstruction
This type of reconstruction shapes the breast with implants and is usually performed in 2 stages: Using a tissue expander in the first stage and then inserting a breast implant under the muscle in the second stage.

An innovative advancement allows for placement of a tissue expander or silicone breast implant over the chest muscle (prepectorally). Learn more about prepectoral reconstruction below, and talk to your surgeon to determine whether this approach is an option for you.
Advantages of Implant-based Reconstruction
The procedure is performed in areas where you are already having surgery; no new incisions are usually required.
Disadvantages of Implant-based Reconstruction
Implants are not lifetime devices and you will likely require additional surgery in the future.

Over the muscle (pre-pec) technique
This technique allows for placement of a tissue expander or silicone-filled breast implant over the chest muscle (prepectorally).
Advantages of Pre-pec Technique
Because the chest muscle isn’t cut:
  • Potentially shorter recovery time
  • Potentially less pain or side effects caused by cutting the chest muscle
Because the implant is placed over the muscle:
  • Surgeon has greater control of shape and form of the breast
  • Flexing your chest muscle may/should not make the breast implants move in unpleasant, unnatural ways
Disadvantages of Pre-pec Technique
  • Not all patients are candidates for pre-pec placement because it requires enough tissue in good condition after a mastectomy
  • Risk of visible rippling of the implant
  • Not all surgeons have experience with this newer technique
Subpectoral (under the muscle) technique
This technique involves placing a breast implant under the chest muscle. In some cases, this can be done immediately after the mastectomy.

If you have minimal breast tissue, your surgeon may recommend placing a tissue expander under your skin and chest muscle before placing the implant. A tissue expander is like a balloon, which can be inflated to stretch the skin and muscle over several months, making room for your implant.
Advantages of Sub-pec Technique
  • Many surgeons have experience with this well-known technique
  • May minimize risk of visible rippling of the implant
Disadvantages of Sub-pec Technique
Because the chest muscle is cut:
  • Potentially longer recovery time
  • Potentially more pain or side effects caused by cutting the chest muscle
Because the implant is placed under the muscle:
  • Flexing your chest muscle may make the breast implants move in unpleasant, unnatural ways
Two-stage vs one-stage breast reconstruction
Two-stage breast reconstruction is the most common type of breast reconstruction performed. The first stage involves placing a tissue expander to recreate a breast pocket after the breast tissue has been removed. In the second stage, the implant is placed into the breast pocket.

One-stage, or direct-to-implant (DTI), breast reconstruction involves placing the implant immediately after breast tissue has been removed.
Advantages of
DTI Reconstruction
The breast implant can be placed immediately instead of requiring an additional tissue expander step.
Disadvantages of
DTI Reconstruction
Not every patient is a candidate.
First stage
This procedure first uses a tissue expander, which is surgically inserted and slowly expanded over time to create a space for the implant. Typically, you will meet with your plastic surgeon every other week to fill the expander with sterile saline in order to gradually stretch the skin.
The tissue expander with over 30 years of clinical experience
Natrelle® 133S Smooth Tissue Expanders are made to match Natrelle INSPIRA® Round Gel Breast Implants. This means that the tissue expander creates a space customized for the breast implant.
Second stage
Once the space reaches the correct size and the tissue has healed, a second surgery will remove the tissue expander and replace it with the breast implant. If a mastectomy was only performed on one breast, some patients choose to have the other breast augmented to maintain symmetry.

Natrelle® Breast Implants IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION AND APPROVED USES

Natrelle® Breast Implants IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION AND APPROVED USES
Breast implants are not considered lifetime devices. The longer people have them, the greater the chances are that they will develop complications, some of which will require more surgery.
Breast implants have been associated with the development of a cancer of the immune system called breast implant–associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). This cancer occurs more commonly in patients with textured breast implants than smooth implants, although rates are not well defined. Some patients have died from BIA-ALCL.
Patients receiving breast implants have reported a variety of systemic symptoms, such as joint pain, muscle aches, confusion, chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases, and others. Individual patient risk for developing these symptoms has not been well established. Some patients report complete resolution of symptoms when the implants are removed without replacement.

What are key complications with breast implants?
Key complications include reoperation, implant removal with or without replacement, implant rupture with silicone-filled implants, implant deflation with saline-filled implants, and capsular contracture (severe scar tissue around the implant). Other complications include breast pain, swelling, asymmetry, wrinkling/rippling, implant malposition nipple complications, hypertrophic scarring, and implant palpability/visibility.
Talk to your doctor about other complications.
