Any advice? What size breast implant do doctors put in when reconstructing the breast after a mastectomy?

Breast Implants: Breast implants are commonly used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. The breast implants come in many different sizes and shapes. The selection of a breast implant depends on the size and shape of the normal remaining breast. Consult with a plastic surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery to learn about breast reconstruction options.
