Wearing a bra, or not, was the last thing on my mind when I underwent a preventive double mastectomy three years ago. But when I woke up from that first surgery, and the three reconstructive surgeries that followed, I was wearing a bra. It was pale pink, closing in front with a strip of hook and loop fasteners, and had two rings hanging from the sides to keep my surgical drains from dangling. I hated this bra.

Breast reconstruction with implants
Implant surgery means using a silicone gel or salt water filled silicone balloon to recreate a breast shape after removal of a breast. It is the simplest way of making a new breast. This type of operation has the advantage of causing very little scarring.
For various reasons, you may decide to have your breast implants removed following a reconstructive breast surgery. The board-certified plastic surgeons at The Breast Center Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery have performed numerous breast implant revisions and removals for women who have had breast reconstruction. They are personally committed to helping you make decisions about your reconstruction results.
