BREAST CANCER SURGERY AND BREAST (MAMMARY) RECONSTRUCTION
Mastectomy – Breast Reconstruction: What Should You Know?
As a highly skilled doctor in the field of non-conservative Breast Surgery (mastectomy) in Nice, Cannes and Beausoleil, I will be pleased to welcome you in my office to advise you and help you overcome this harsh period.
What is the solution proposed by Dr. Farès Belhassen after a mastectomy?
Why choosing Breast Reconstruction?
Some women use Breast Reconstruction to avoid feelings of inferiority and disability. Likewise, this intervention allows them to regain their sensuality and still feel desired in a superficial society where everything is only appearance. Moreover, this solution is more effective and more discreet instead of being forced to wear external breast prosthesis.
Are Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction covered by Social Security?
The preventive mastectomy against cancer followed by Breast Reconstruction is 100% covered by Social Security.
Although the reimbursement of the first surgery was obvious, surgical implants were accepted by mutual insurance companies and Social Security only during the late 1990s.
Today, any woman who has undergone an ablation of one or two breasts can resort to Breast Reconstruction without worrying about social coverage.
