Although breast reconstruction can be performed months or years following breast cancer treatment, it is best conducted in conjunction with a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Planning breast reconstruction to coincide with breast cancer surgery allows your plastic surgeon to coordinate treatment with other caregivers.

Breast reconstruction can be performed months or even years following a mastectomy or lumpectomy and accelerates the overall recovery process.
