Patients undergoing reconstructive surgery after a breast cancer diagnosis should expect more from their cosmetic surgeons.
According to cosmetic surgery expert Dalvi Humzah, a member of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, all breast cancer patients who have augmentation following a mastectomy should be happy with the outcome.
He claimed that the number of people who receive a breast cancer diagnosis has risen, according to Breast Cancer Care, so it is more important than ever before that surgical outcomes are positive.
"With breast cancer being diagnosed in one in eight women in the UK, it has never been so important for women to feel confident in the results of reconstructive surgery following breast cancer," Humzah said.
He added that women who are not happy with the outcome of their reconstructive surgery should consider approaching a specialist cosmetic surgeon for further treatment as it will boost their confidence.
Humzah recently warned patients against receiving non-surgical cosmetic treatments from unqualified professionals.
