Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Breast Reconstruction restores the shape and appearance of the breast. You may consider breast reconstruction following a mastectomy or a lumpectomy, but the decision for each women is personal. At GCA® we understand how unique and personal this decision is, learn more about the procedure and your options with GCA®.
Breast Reconstruction Surgery
What is it?
Breast reconstruction restores and rebuilds the breast shape after a mastectomy. It may be performed following removal of the whole breast (mastectomy) or part of the breast (lumpectomy). The aim is to reconstruct a breast of similar size and shape to your original breast. However, they won’t be identical.
Breast Reconstruction Options
Breast reconstruction can be approached differently. It can start during the mastectomy (immediate breast reconstruction), or in a separate operation after the mastectomy (delayed breast reconstruction), to allow recovery time and strength rebuilding after surgery. This choice should be discussed with a surgeon since it also depends on factors such as the type and stage of cancer, personal preference or the treatment.
One-Stage Breast Reconstruction
Immediately after your general surgeon removes any cancerous breast tissue, your plastic surgeon will place your breast implant(s). This type of procedure is an option if you’ve had a nipple-sparing mastectomy, meaning the nipple is not removed and most of the breast skin is intact.

I believe that all bodies are beautiful, that self-esteem prevails over everything. However, there is always a controversy with aesthetic medicine. "If you have surgery it's because you don't love yourself" of course I love myself, but if there's anything I can do to see myself better, I'll do it! Performing breast augmentation was a very important step for me since I had had it in mind for years. I am very happy with the decision and with what everything has entailed. And yes, I feel better about myself and I'm super happy.
I am so happy that my surgeon advised me to get Nagor implants. I love my results, because my breasts feel very natural and soft. Undergoing breast augmentation was a life changing experience for me. My dream came true and I am finally happy and confident in my body. With Nagor breast implants, I feel like a beautiful powerful woman who can achieve anything that she wants! My results are so beautiful and if I am ever going to get another breast augmentation, I will definitely choose Nagor implants again.
