Question:

Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"

Are all women candidates for immediate breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery or treatment?

Answer:

Rachel McKenna, MSN, CRNP, Nurse Practitioner in the Division of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, responds:

The vast majority of women are candidates for breast reconstruction. There are a variety of reconstructive options, and you may not be a candidate for all types. You and your surgeon will discuss which type of breast reconstruction best fits your situation.
