Breast Reconstruction Surgery
You've heard about breast reconstruction implants. And you probably know someone who's been affected by breast cancer. A mastectomy is one of the more common ways to treat this killer of women.
Safety counts, always. If you're affected by breast cancer, listen to your doctor. And if he or she suggests a partial or full-mastectomy, then for your health and well-being, do it.
Once it's done, however, some women feel less than complete, missing part of or a complete breast. Many women undergo breast reconstruction surgery to treat this issue. And while the psychological benefits of such a procedure are well-known, a new study suggests that breast reconstruction surgery can have major implications, particularly related to the stomach.
Breast Reconstruction Surgery
According to a new survey, women who pursue breast reconstruction surgery to address loss of breast size and appearance from a mastectomy are generally happy with the results and report increased feelings of sex appeal and well-being.
The survey, published in the online edition of Cancer, a journal of the American Cancer Society, consisted of 51 women, each given a questionnaire three weeks after the surgery, and again three months after they'd done the procedure. As most of the women indicated, they had no regrets. The women felt better about their bodies, their health and their sex appeal.
About ten per cent of the women had major complications. "Major" was defined as an unexpected return to the hospital. All of the women recovered from the procedure, complications or not. Yet, researchers noted that the surgery came with unforeseen consequences.
Side Effects of Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Yes, there are side effects, too. Breast reconstruction surgery requires a donor site from which to take tissue. That donor site is typically the abdomen. And as the researchers found, many of the women experienced significant loss of abdominal strength.
That's not the end of the world. But as the study suggests, it presented an ongoing inconvenience to the women. Such deterioration of the stomach muscles might, for example, make it difficult to pick up groceries or a child.
Lack of abdominal strength could also make it difficult to get out of bed. Instead of sitting up, as she used to, a woman might have to roll out of bed.
Safe Breast Reconstruction: How TotalCurve Might Help
For women interested in breast reconstruction, TotalCurve presents an attractive option. Let's review how it might help.
TotalCurve is formulated to increase breast volume and reduce sagging. While it's unlikely that TotalCurve will dramatically increase breast size in women who've completely removed a breast, it's very possible that it can increase volume in women with partial breast removal. And it can improve appearance.
Volufiline contains sarsasapogenin, which stimulates lipogenesis. That's an important point, because during lipogenesis, fatty tissues grow within the breasts, for more volume and better lift.
TotalCurve is a natural, two-step breast reconstruction therapy, consisting of a Daily Supplement and a Lifting & Firming Gel.
