Breast reconstruction: some sites have
illustrations, some have photos of the results of the different procedures. Please note that not all procedures may be available
in your area. Some physicans may be better at one procedure than another--you REALLY need to do your homework in selecting
a physician and a procedure! There may a physical reason why one procedure may be better for you than another--you and
your plastic surgeon will have to discuss this. My website is NOT endorsing one procedure over another, nor am I endorsing
any physicians who may be listed in these sites.
