Cancer patients who undergo mastectomy have their choice of reconstruction options, including implants and flap reconstruction techniques, that yield safe, natural-looking results, says plastic surgeon Stephen Hardy. "The important thing the patient wants to know is to make sure they're working with a team. This is not an isolated surgeon doing this on his or her own," Hardy said. "It's important to know they're working as a team and everyone is on base and everyone has the same goal in mind."
