The patient may have undergone breast reconstruction and failed to achieve the desired result or may have started the breast reconstruction process and not completed it.
The passage of time can cause changes in your body and affect its reconstruction, changing the shape and position of the breast.
Secondary reconstruction involves performing a procedure to finalize or improve the result of a previously performed reconstruction.
On certain occasions, the shape of the reconstructed breast may change over time, or due to the effect of radiation therapy.
Secondary surgery after breast reconstruction is a challenge that we face, which allows us to improve the quality of life for many women.
