The evolution of breast cancer treatment has led to the development of numerous breast reconstructive options for women. In years past, breast reconstruction was an afterthought following definitive oncologic treatment. Currently, surgical trends favor immediate breast reconstruction. Today, patients are presented with many different options at the initial consultation. The critical components of the consultation include the timing of reconstruction, the type of mastectomy (partial, unilateral, bilateral, skin-sparing), adjuvant therapy, patient anatomy, patient motivation, and family support. This chapter focuses on many of these issues and their impact on the options for breast reconstruction.
