Breast reconstruction can be offered as an immediate (at the time of mastectomy) or delayed (at a later date after the mastectomy) procedure. The techniques can be broadly divided into autologous, implants or a combination.

During the consultation, Mr Ridha will discuss the available treatment options that can achieve your desired breast shape, size and contour.

Autologous reconstruction

Autologous means using your own tissue to create a breast mound. Mr Ridha will identify where there is excess skin and fat which can be used to reconstruct your breast. These areas, known as donor sites, are commonly the lower abdomen, the thighs and/or the buttocks.

This type of reconstruction is considered the gold standard as the tissue most resembles breast tissue with regards to texture and feel, and produces a more natural looking result.

This procedure involves microsurgery and is performed in a single stage. Mr Ridha is a highly trained microsurgeon and performs such cases in both his NHS and private practice.

Implant based reconstruction

In implant-based reconstruction an implant is used to reconstruct a breast mound and is usually performed in two stages. In the first stage, a tissue expander is placed at the time of the mastectomy. Over the upcoming weeks, the tissue expander is slowly filled with sterile saline in the clinic. Once the desired volume and breast size is reached, Mr Ridha will then replace the expander with a fixed volume implant.
