Breast Reconstruction


Meme Reconstruction
The studies and our own experience show that breast reconstruction surgeries provide a lot of psychological support to women

Florence Nightingale Hospitals, we are able to perform breast reconstruction surgeries simultaneously with breast removal (mastectomy) surgery. Thus, when our patients come out of surgery, they have a new breast and do not have to experience the psychological distress that a breastless period can cause.

The breast created in reconstruction surgeries can be very similar to the natural breast thanks to the new technologies in the procedure.
Who are the suitable candidates for breast reconstruction (repair
Where all mastectomies are performed, patients may be suitable candidates for breast reconstruction. These patients can also undergo breast reconstruction (repair) with mastectomy (breast removal).
The other patients may be advised by their surgeons to wait for reconstruction surgery (e.g. if the breast is to be repaired with the patient’s own tissue (flap transfer), obesity, high blood pressure, smoking).
What are the risks that can be observed in breast reconstruction?
Can be observed after all surgical operations; the risks of bleeding, edema/fluid collection or anesthesia problems can also be observed after breast reconstruction surgeries.

In those who drink cigars, wound healing may be later or the scar may appear more. If a prosthesis is to be used, there is rarely a risk of developing an infection. In such cases, sometimes it is necessary to remove the prosthesis and put it back in months later.

The most common problem in the use of thesis is capsule contracture. In the capsule cantraculation; the scar tissue around the prosthesis compresses the prosthesis, which makes the breast feel stiff. Capsule contracture can be treated.

Meme reconstruction (repair) has no effect on the recurrence (recurrence) of cancer. It also does not create a condition that prevents radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
What are the types of prostheses used in breast reconstruction?
The outer part of all breast prostheses is made of silicone. On the inside is silicone gel or saline (salt water mixture).
Neck how to perform repair surgeries? different techniques can be used in
Meme reconstruction. The method specific to each patient’s condition and physiology is decided by talking to the patients under the guidance of the surgeon

Insation of the skin: The most commonly used technique for breast reconstruction is the expansion of the skin, then the placement of the prosthesis.

Mastektomy: After (breast removal surgery), a tissue expander is placed under the breast skin and chest wall muscle. In the weeks or months after surgery through the port placed under the skin, the surgeon inflates the tissue expander by injecting salt water.

The tissue expander is removed with a second surgery after theder has reached sufficient width and a permanent prosthesis is replaced. Areola (brown ring around the nipple) and nipple are then made.

In some patients, there is no need to expand the skin and it is possible to place permanent prostheses at the same time as a mastectomy

Flep reconstruction: Instead of implanting breast prosthesis, the method of breast reconstruction is called flap reconstruction by removing tissue from another part of the body (abdomen, back or hip

Flep reconstruction also has different types

Flep reconstruction is a more complicated procedure than the use of prosthesis. After the operation, traces remain in both the places where the tissue is removed and the breast is made. In addition, the healing process may be longer than the prosthesis method. On the other hand, the result may be more natural in breast reconstruction performed with your own touch. Sometimes getting rid of excess skin and fat in areas such as the abdomen and hips where the tissue is removed can also be a separate gain for you.

What to expect after breast reconstruction (breast repair) surgery
Meme after reconstruction surgery, your pain is at a level that can be controlled with painkillers and you will be discharged from the hospital within 2 to 5 days. Usually, drains are installed to remove the fluid accumulated between the tissues from the body. Drains are removed 1-2 weeks after surgery. Stitches are removed in about one week and 10 days

If you return to your life, it may take 4-6 weeks.

The normal sense is not acquired by reconstruction; however, some sense may come over time. Most of the postoperative scars become uncertain over time.
