Sensation

Breast Restoration - Sensation

The final goal of beast restoration is not only to create a soft, symmetric breast but also to restore sensation. This can be achieved by microsurgically connecting the sensory nerve of the breast that is severed during the mastectomy to the sensate nerve of the abdominal tissue. Over a period of three to six months, the nerve grows slowly and offers the possibility of regaining normal sensation.
