Reconstructive breast surgery

The female breast is a powerful symbol of feminity and sexuality

There is no other body feature that symbolizes feminity more than a woman's breast. Only when their breasts develop in their early youth, do young girls feel that they are entering womanhood.

The absence of a normal breast since the puberty due to a congenital abnormality or after treatment of a breast cancer leads to aesthetic, psychological, sexual and self-esteem problems.

Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy or congenital abdnormalities (tuberous breast, Poland syndrome, amastia, chest malformation,...).
