Autologous reconstruction (sometimes called autogenous reconstruction) uses tissue — skin, fat, and sometimes muscle — from another place on your body to form a breast shape.
Breast Implant Reconstruction
After a mastectomy, one of the ways that a breast can be reconstructed is with an implant. A breast implant is a round, flexible silicone shell filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Breast implants can either be placed over the chest muscle (pectoralis) or underneath part or all of the chest muscle. The implant replaces the breast tissue that is removed during the mastectomy, restoring the shape and volume of the breast.
Corrective Breast Reconstruction
The goal of corrective (or “revision”) surgery is to fix problems that occurred during or after breast reconstruction surgery that impact your quality of life or your health.
