Abstract

Women at high risk for developing breast cancer are increasingly turning to risk reduction surgery, and the majority of these women will pursue breast reconstruction. Therefore, to fully understand the surgical management of high-risk women, one must be aware of the reconstructive options available including prosthetic and autologous modalities. Each of these procedures has distinct advantages and disadvantages, which are discussed in the following chapter. The key aspects of these procedures and their outcomes are also reviewed.
