Surgery: Mastectomy

Some women are either not candidates for breast conservation or choose mastectomy for personal reasons. Women considering mastectomy should be given the option of immediate reconstruction. Some women, however, are not good candidates for immediate reconstruction because of an underlying medical condition, such as diabetes. For these women there is still the option of delayed reconstruction, and this option should be taken into consideration at the time the initial mastectomy.
