breast reconstructionReconstruction is an umbrella term covering a variety of procedures and techniques.

Generally, most of the procedures that fall under the category are defects either present at birth, or acquired later on in life through accidents, infection, or disease.

Congenital or birth abnormalities may include craniofacial deformities, such as cleft lip or palate.

Acquired abnormalities - including accidental burns or lacerations, or removal of tissue during cancer surgery - call for a wide range of possible treatments including skin grafts and flap surgery for burns or lacerations, or complete breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.
