There are several reconstruction options available to women. They can get breast implants -- with either saline or silicone. Or they can opt for use a tissue flap --that's when skin, fat, and muscle are taken from the stomach, back or other part of the body to form the breast.
Kuhfeldt decided on breast implants --right now she is undergoing the expansion process. That's where a balloon like device is placed underneath the chest --and over the course of weeks continually filled with saline.
