Survive The Battle with Breast Reconstruction

Being diagnosed with breast cancer changes a woman’s life forever, but new treatments mean that more women are surviving the battle. The most common surgery for breast cancer is a single or double mastectomy. Many women seek the skill and expertise of board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, for breast reconstruction. Dr. Castellon offers breast reconstruction in Melbourne, at his practice, Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, along with various breast enhancement options for women in Brevard County and Central Florida.


Mastectomy is a type of surgery that removes cancerous tissue by removing one or both breasts. Women are grateful with the outcome of the breast cancer treatment, but may feel as if they have lost a part of their femininity.

Breast reconstruction uses the remaining breast tissue, donor tissue, and breast implants to restore a woman’s breasts after mastectomy. The primary benefit of breast reconstruction is that you will regain your femininity and confidence. You no longer need to use breast prosthetics to give yourself the natural female contours.

You may need several surgeries for your breast reconstruction, so Dr. Castellon wants to ensure that you are fully prepared both physically and emotionally.

While it is possible to reconstruct the breasts in conjunction with the mastectomy, many women are focused on battling cancer and do not pursue breast reconstruction until they are cleared of the cancer. In order to be considered for the surgery, you will need to have adequate breast tissue and/or donor tissue to reconstruct the breasts.


The procedure is tailored to meet the physical and emotional needs of each patient, ensuring a supportive and compassionate journey to recovery.
