Who qualifies for the breast reconstructive procedure?

If you’ve had an intervention that affected your breast, you might qualify for a reconstructive procedure.

As its name suggests, this procedure aims to restore the breasts’ natural aspect.

Your doctor will examine you before he or she can decide if you are an eligible candidate for this type of intervention.

Typically, there are two circumstances in which patients qualify for breast reconstructive surgery:

  • they have undergone a mastectomy intervention or any other oncologic procedure that affected the breast
  • they have suffered a breast injury
