This is known as breast reconstruction.
How breast reconstruction is done?
Breast reconstruction is also known as a tissue expander. A breast tissue expander is flattened breast implant that is structured to stretch the skin and muscle to increase the size of the breast. You will receive a temporary tissue expander at the time of your mastectomy. During a mastectomy, the surgeon cuts the chest muscles and place a tissue expander below the chest muscles. The team will periodically inject salt water into the tissue expander. They do this for over a few months, as a result, the tissue expander expands thereby stretching the breast muscles. When the breast muscles are expanded to the desired size, the tissue expander is removed in the second operation and this will increase the size of your breast.
