Abstract

Breast reconstruction provides closure to many women who have been treated for breast cancer by increasing their comfort in clothing and providing a psychological benefit. The role of the plastic surgeon is to guide the patient through the decision tree to select a reconstructive pathway that is safe and meets expectations. Patients who choose reconstruction must navigate a reconstructive pathway guided by their plastic surgeons that includes decisions regarding the timing, type, and extent of reconstruction. The gold standard for breast cancer care includes an integrated multidisciplinary team approach comprising surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, oncology nurses, and plastic surgeons.
