Beautiful breasts restoring with professionalism
Detailed correction that heals the wounds of the heart
What are breast cancer and mastectomy?
Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant tumor grows within and spreads from the breasts—common in women in their 40s. Breast cancer is more prevalent in women who have had an early first menstrual period, have never been pregnant, or have never breastfed. If discovered early, many cases of breast cancer can be treated with radiation therapy or partial mastectomy. However, in attempting to prevent cancer from spreading to other areas, mastectomy involves removing more than half of the breasts. At this point, most breast tissues—including nipples, areola, and skin—are removed, causing depression or feeling of loss even after the surgery.

This is appropriate for women who retain some breast skin and tissues after mastectomy and whose breasts were not very large to begin with. The implant is inserted using the incision point made during the mastectomy, which means that there is no additional scarring, and the recovery is relatively quick. Another advantage is that this makes recurrent cancer easier to discover.
Implant insertion after tissue expansion
This method uses a tissue expander, which slowly injects saline solution into the breasts over three to four months to create space for the implants before the insertion. The process does not interfere with the patient’s daily life, allows for the reconstruction of larger breasts, and anticipate more natural-looking results.
Using Autologous Tissues
This method uses tissues from the patient’s own body and can reconstruct the breasts without the worries of complications or transplant rejection. The downside is that the surgeries are more complicated, require a longer recovery period, have a chance of necrosis in transplanted tissues, and can cause scarring in body parts other than the breasts: this can be stressful for both the surgeon and the patient.
Abdominal Tissue Transplant
It is a method of reconstructing the breast by implanting tissues from rectus abdominis muscle, abdominal muscles and fat. The key is to ensure that the blood vessels in the transplanted tissues stay intact, and this is a better option for women who have a certain amount of body fat than those who are skinny. As the procedure removes the abdominal fat and reconstructs the breasts at the same time, it can address body-type problems such as obesity.
Back Tissue Transplant
It is a method to reconstruct the breast by transplanting the back muscles and the surrounding tissues, which are considered relatively large muscles in the human body. However, the volume is smaller than the abdominal tissue, it is difficult to give enough volume itself. In this case, the implants will be used together to size the breast.
Buttocks Tissue Transplant
This can be attempted if either of the abdominal or the back tissues are unavailable. Female buttocks store more fat than that of a male, and this may provide an abundance of necessary tissues to reconstruct the breasts. However, it is difficult to maintain the transplanted tissues’ blood vessels, and this approach has a relatively high chance of failure.
As asymmetry in breasts is natural, the degree of asymmetry must be checked to determine the correction.
Breast asymmetry is most often determined by an unbalanced development of the breast during secondary sexual characteristics. Acquired causes include pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, which are constantly affected by hormones.
As with all natural objects without perfect symmetry, no wonder that the breast is slightly different on both sides. Therefore, if the asymmetry is small enough to feel only an individual, it does not need to be corrected surgically. But if it is severe that it affects daily life or even affects psychologically, it can be corrected through surgical options.
Congenitally uneven growth
Strong hormone change from pregnancy, childbirth, etc.
