Comprehensive patient education that includes information on breast reconstruction, with photos, can help women with breast cancer make more informed decisions about their treatment options.
In women undergoing postmastectomy breast reconstruction with their own tissue, a specific type of muscle-sparing abdominal tissue reduced complications and improved some aspects of quality of life.

Use of breast reconstruction in women undergoing mastectomy for breast cancer increased significantly, from 46% in 1998 to 63% in 2007.
Factors such as smoking and obesity increase the odds of early implant loss in women who undergo mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction with implants.
Women who have received cosmetic breast implants may have an increased risk of diagnosis at a non-localized stage of breast cancer, and seem to have worse breast cancer survival.
For women undergoing breast reconstruction with implants, most patient-reported outcomes are similar with two different types of silicone gel-filled implants.
Breast cancer patients who undergo a mastectomy followed by breast reconstruction using a transplanted flap of their own tissue have a low rate of early postoperative complications. However, a new study found that their risk varies by the type of flap procedure they undergo.
Seroma complications are higher with AlloDerm human matrix than porcine Strattice.
Enhanced stromal vascular fraction and platelet-rich plasma grafting maintain volume, 3D contour.
