There have been great advances in the early diagnosis of breast cancer but thousands of women still face mastectomy.
Traditionally women were asked to wait until after treatment was complete to have reconstruction--
But pioneering work in recent years perfected the technique of using the patient's own tissue, rather than an implant, for reconstruction.
For most women that means the wait is over.

While reconstruction can be done in the vast majority of cases, only about a third of women are having it done at all and only 60 percent of those getting reconstruction are having it done at the same time.
