Two years ago my best friend found a lump in her breast which ended up being cancerous, thankfully the illness was caught very early and just over 9 months ago she was cleared as being in remission. The biggest negative that cam about from this illness was that she had a double mastectomy, one breast did need to be removed, and my friend opted to remove the other in order to minimize the risk of future illness. Some months after the operation, my friend decided to look for the best breast reconstruction in LA, and she found a wonderful surgeon. I have witnessed first hand just how powerful and operation of this ilk can be, and I wanted to discuss a little further just what it can do for your life. If you have had a mastectomy and aren’t sure whether or not reconstruction is for you, here are some of the benefits which you can expect.
Inner Confidence and Belief
For us ladies, our breasts are very sensitive subjects and they are a proud part of our body. Losing the breasts can cause a great lack of confidence and a real feeling of being down and feeling unsightly. When you have your breasts reconstructed however, this feeling quickly subsides, or at least it did in my friend. Whilst the first few months were difficult for her, in terms of getting used to her new body, within just 4 months I saw a remarkable difference in my friend in terms of being outgoing, sociable and having a passion for life again. All the beauty tips in the world can’t make you this confident! If you decide to have your breasts reconstructed, this is what you can expect to feel like, like you again.
Anyone who has gone through a breast mastectomy will know that finding clothes to wear can be incredibly difficult and a challenging experience. Finding the right bra to wear alone can be one of the most difficult things to do, and this is something which can easily bring you down. After reconstructive surgery however, you can finally get back to hitting the shops and finding some beautiful clothing choices which you can wear with style. Our clothes really speak about who we are, and most women feel far better and far more comfortable, in clothing which suits them and their body.
Sex is always an important part in any relationship and post-mastectomy this of course proves to be very challenging for women. Despite what your hubby or partner will tell you, you won’t feel as sexy or attractive as before, and this can really have an impaction the physical side of your relationship. Whilst it won’t happen instantly, after you have had breast reconstruction surgery, you can really start to feel more attractive and the confidence which you will have will shine through, eventually helping with things in the bedroom.
