While breast surgery is something many women would choose, mastectomy surgery is usually the choice of women having pains and high risk of cancer – and is not a case of aesthetics.
Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2016 -- Plastic surgery statistic numbers are increasing each year, and while breast surgery is on the top of the list, it's not only for breast enlargement many women would undergo the surgery. For many, breast surgery suggests an aesthetic change, however, there are so many women around the world who make the choice to perform breast surgery that not many would like to: mastectomy surgery is when breast tissue is being removed in order to prevent cancer, stop pain and extreme mental distress for patients with cysts.
Amanda T., patient from Manchester, UK, was having fibrocystic breasts and strong pains for many years – the only choice was a double mastectomy surgery. Due to the price of the surgery being extremely high in the UK, the patient was considering mastectomy surgery abroad.
"I was confident I chose the right hospital and the surgeon – I was consulted very professionally before coming, and was absolutely ready for the surgery. The surgeon has recommended double mastectomy with breast reconstruction surgery, and that's what I had done – although the recovery was not easy, it is normal after such surgeries, and now as almost a year has passed, I am no more suffering pain and mental distress, and I am very happy with the result." – says Amanda T., who chose Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius for her mastectomy surgery with reconstruction.
"The numbers of mastectomy surgery patients are increasing each year – patients are being better informed and can evaluate the risks – mastectomy is sometimes the only option for women who have high risk of breast cancer. However, with today's plastic surgery options for reconstruction, it's often a surgery women actually see as not only a way to eliminate cancer risks, but also have their breasts reshaped or enlarged." – says Andrius Jonutis, General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita Hospital.
