Considering Breast Implants After Mastectomy In NJ

Breast cancer is a frightening and all-to-common condition affecting women today. The woman who undergoes breast cancer treatment has a number of considerations to make regarding her health, her appearance, and her identity. Due to widespread press, mastectomy, or the removal of a diseased breast, has become a common treatment option for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Mastectomy is even considered by a large number of women as a preventive measure against breast cancer after actress Angelina Jolie bravely revealed her choice to undergo this procedure in response to the presence of BRCA genes.

Mastectomy is a very personal choice and one that no doubt takes a great deal of consideration. While the intent is to guard health and life, the removal of breast tissue also has an emotional impact on women, potentially causing issues with self-esteem and identity.
