Abstract

Conclusion: As physicians involved at multiple levels in the treatment of breast cancer patients, it is our duty to understand the basics of diagnostic and treatment options for our patients, but also to promote specific counseling about the potential benefits of reconstruction within the medical and general communities. Raising awareness about breast reconstruction enables more women to consider it as an option that for many will translate into an improved quality of life as a breast cancer survivor.
