Abstract

When mastectomy is required both in breast cancer (BC) and in risk reduction setting (RRS), reconstruction is nowadays considered an integral part of the complete management of BC, and, one more reason an obligatory step in RRS. In oncologic surgery, whether to perform immediate versus delayed reconstruction is still matter of debate, although it is recognized from many years that immediate surgery at the time of mastectomy gives the most benefits in terms of psychosocial recovery [1-3].
