Chances are your reconstructed breast may feel firmer and look rounder or flatter than your natural breast. It may not have the same shape as your breast before mastectomy, nor will it exactly match your opposite breast. But these differences will mostly be apparent only to you. For most patients who have a mastectomy, breast reconstruction dramatically improves their appearance and quality of life following surgery.
As with all surgical procedures, you should discuss all potential risks and benefits with your surgeon.
