For many women, restoring the look and feel of their breasts can be emotionally rewarding and promote a general sense of well-being. If you are considering breast reconstruction surgery, Sientra has a comprehensive portfolio of options to support you along your reconstructive journey.
Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure that restores the shape and appearance of a breast. You may consider breast reconstruction following a mastectomy or a lumpectomy.
The most common approach is implant-based reconstruction which uses a breast implant to rebuild breast shape.1
Breast reconstruction can either be performed in a one-step procedure, often referred to as direct-to-implant, where the implant is inserted at the time of your mastectomy. Or, more commonly, the reconstruction takes place in two steps.1
During the two-step reconstruction method, a temporary breast tissue expander is used to form a new breast pocket which will eventually hold the long-term breast implant.
