It is natural for some patients to seek reconstructive surgery. However, some women are just relieved to have had the cancer removed and are not keen on having breast reconstruction. Although an external implant is available which can be placed inside the brassiere, which may be adequate for some women. While other women will insist on surgical breast reconstruction to give them a satisfactory appearance. All patients undergoing mastectomy are offered the possibility of breast reconstruction, either performed immediately at the time of mastectomy, or as a later procedure. Mastectomy combined with immediate reconstruction is preferred and seems to cost less and look better than mastectomy with subsequent delayed reconstruction.
