Your breast reconstruction surgery will be undertaken by a specialist plastic surgeon or oncoplastic breast surgeon, experienced in most types of reconstructive techniques. Ensure that your surgeon shares his experience in reconstructive breast surgery with you, especially what range of procedure he or she can perform, and how often they perform them.
With decisions of this magnitude, many women find it helpful to discuss their options with more than one specialist, getting a second opinion. Hospitals nearly always have breast surgeons and plastic surgeons on their medical staff, but a patient can always ask for recommendations or suggestions from their breast surgeon.
