At Monarch, it is our goal to help you through this difficult time with compassion and support at every step of the way. No concern is too big or too small, and we encourage you to discuss your goals for breast reconstruction with us so that we may help you feel restored and whole by the end of your journey. In addition to restoring your body physically, it is important to understand that breast reconstruction also offers significant social and psychological benefits as well. Many patients experience significant improvement in psychological, social, and sexual well-being in as little as three weeks following breast reconstruction surgery.

Social well-being

Before breast reconstruction, you may feel a loss of control, and by extension your self-esteem may not be as high as it once was, which may cause stress in your personal and professional relationships. Undergoing a breast reconstruction helps many women overcome these feelings. By improving your sense of wholeness, you will experience a renewed joy in your relationships. You may feel an increase in confidence, personal beauty, and overall satisfaction with life. This improved confidence and sense of control will spill over into other areas of your life -- adding to a growing ability to enjoy after cancer.

Sexual well-being

In addition to feeling better emotionally and socially, the wholeness that comes from breast reconstruction goes hand-in-hand with feeling complete as a feminine, sexually attractive woman. By feeling confident and complete, you may feel freer in your intimate relationships with a greater sense of control over your body and appearance.

Final thoughts on the benefits of breast reconstruction You deserve to feel whole, confident, and entirely in love with your life and your body, particularly after cancer. Breast reconstruction may help bring you that much closer to everything you deserve in life.
