Breast cancer reconstruction and aesthetic breast surgery share many similar principles.

Removing breast implants and performing a breast lift (mastopexy) is a common procedure and may be a component of breast cancer treatment.

In a patient with significant breast ptosis who undergoes a mastectomy for breast cancer, the nipple areola complex cannot often remain viable nor can it reliably be lifted into a higher position and consistently yield an optimal aesthetic result.

To circumvent this problem, and in the appropriate breast cancer patient, a staged breast reconstruction can be performed.
