Breast Implants For Cancer Survivors

When a woman discovers that she has cancer, it can be a very traumatic time in her life. When she finds out that she must have her breasts removed through a mastectomy, she will be very discouraged. There is hope though for women who are victims of a mastectomy and survivors of cancer. A woman can receive breast implants to bring some of the normalcy to her life once again.

There are two main types of breast implants that are available today. There are saline and silicone breast implants. You and the doctor you choose will likely discuss the pros and cons of both products. You will also have to talk to your doctor about the placement of the implants. Finding a plastic surgeon will be a large part of your decision making process. You will want to make sure you have a doctor who does reconstructive surgery as well as breast implants. Most important of all is that they have a good reputation and are an upstanding member of the plastic surgeon community.

One mistake can really ruin the reputation of a surgeon. A lot depends on whom it is they made the mistake on, but you will want to know a surgeon's background as well as any problems they may have had during their practice. It may help you to find out if they are a part of any boards of plastic surgery. It also may be helpful to know if they are a member of any plastic surgery associations. You can also go to the internet and search for reviews of their work as a plastic surgeon.
Being a professional plastic surgeon entails much more than simply being a skilled surgeon. It entails how a surgeon deals with their staff and patients. It is important that you have a consultation appointment with any of the surgeons that you are considering to do your breast implants. You will want to know how they work with people. It is important that the surgeon be a good listener and considers your concerns. They should try to be sensitive to the position you are in and not just be factual. There are many ramifications to any plastic surgery. They should really take the time to find out what your expectations are for the surgery because with the wrong expectations, you could suffer emotionally if things do not turn out the way you had hoped. Professionalism also includes how well the office is run and how the surgeon keeps up with their outward appearance.

Once you find a surgeon who you think will meet your needs as you have reconstructive plastic surgery, make sure that you discuss the financial side of the surgery with the financial advisor at the clinic. Many plastic surgeries will not be covered on insurance, but in the case of an individual having reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy, there may be hope that your insurance will cover it. Make sure that the clinic will accept it if you can receive the help.
