Abstract

Parallel to its life-threatening nature, breast cancer can affect physical integrity, having a psychosocial impact on patients. Determining the optimal proportion of patients who should undergo breast reconstruction after cancer surgery represents a complex task. What seems to be unquestionable is that the ability to offer reconstruction and a wide range of surgical options plays an important role in current breast cancer management. The multidisciplinary approach is a paramount aspect not only for a successful oncologic treatment, but also for improving patient quality of life.
