Abstract

The treatment of carcinoma of the breast, as with any other disease, may be considered optimal only when maximal rehabilitation has been achieved. Satisfactory restoration of contour is now possible in most patients after mastectomy. Reconstruction of 63 breasts in 50 patients has been performed. No attempt should be made to persuade a patient to undergo reconstruction. However, it would seem reasonable that patients who have undergone mastectomy might be informed of this possiblity and the reasonable results obtainable.
