  • Abstract

Females are sensitive about the appearance of their body. The loss of an important organ because of breast mastectomy can be a source of immense psychological trauma.
Breast reconstruction surgery is well known since two decades; however, it has not been fully utilized by females who underwent mastectomy for breast cancer.
The objectives of this quantitative study are:
(i) Measuring the level of awareness amongst breast cancer patients about breast reconstruction surgeries in SMC.
(ii) Measuring the willingness of breast cancer patients to perform reconstruction postmastectomy.
(iii) Measuring the willingness of immediate reconstruction amongst female breast
cancer patients who elect to go for breast reconstruction.
The findings from this study showed that some of the factors that may contribute to the reduced use of reconstructive surgery post-mastectomy including lack of awareness about the availability of this service, the misconception that the patient and the surgeon have towards reconstructive surgery, and the patient believes. It is recommended to use the findings to improve mental health of females with breast cancer and help them cope and enjoy their life after mastectomy.
