Breast Reconstruction

Providence offers consultation on immediate or post-surgical breast reconstruction through the Rapid Access Breast Clinic located at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital. Same-day breast reconstructions are performed at MSJ in collaboration with general surgery. At Providence, women have two basic options when considering breast reconstruction.

Tissue expander reconstruction – nonautologous
This option requires three procedures:

  • Mastectomy and tissue expander implant
  • Insertion of permanent implant
  • Nipple reconstruction

Tissue replacement reconstruction – autologous
This option uses a woman’s own tissue, usually from the lower abdomen or back, to reconstruct the breast.

Referrals are made through the Rapid Access Breast Clinic and BC Cancer Agency.
