Surgeons carrying out breast reconstruction| aim to match the size and shape of the reconstructed breast to your other breast. This is not always possible, so they may suggest you have an operation on your natural breast to give a better match.
This can involve:
Surgery to your other breast will cause some scars, but these will fade with time. Some operations, such as repositioning the nipple, may lead to reduction or loss of sensation in the nipple.
