Mastectomy for breast cancer can be devastating for many women. Breast reconstruction not only restores a physical breast mound for the woman, it also facilitates the healing process by improving her body image and self-confidence, hence improving psychological recovery.
Breast reconstruction generally falls into two categories: implant-based and flap reconstruction (autologous), which uses the patient’s own body tissue to form the new breast. Sometimes, a combination of these two are used.
Additional procedures to improve symmetry and shape of the breasts may also be included.
Dr Ong has been invited by various media including newspapers, magazines & various organizations to share her expertise on breast construction.
