breast_cancer_mastectomiesIf you’ve recently undergone a mastectomy, you may be aware of the revolutionary technology and medical procedures that can help you feel better about the changes that have occurred to your body. With plastic and cosmetic surgery, your body can look great and you can feel more comfortable about the changes you’ve gone through.  

When some women get breast cancer, they choose to undergo mastectomies, which involve either full or partial removal of one or both breasts, according to Cancer.org. Other women will pursue skin-sparing mastectomies, which is best if they’re planning to get breast reconstruction afterwards.
