Breast Cancer Reconstruction


Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the world. Yearly, millions of women suffer from this horrendous disease every year - thankfully, due to medical advances, most people survive, although at a price. A disfigured breast(s) is always there to remind them of what they’ve been through. Aside from being a reminder for all the pain and hardship they’ve suffered, it is also aesthetically not pleasing and makes the person feel self-conscious. Breast construction surgery is a series of operations that will help you regain what you’ve lost due to the disease.

What is Breast Cancer Reconstruction?

 Breast cancer reconstruction is a series of operations that includes breast augmentation, breast lifting, and nipple reconstruction to recreate and amend all aspects of a person’s breasts and make the signs of a mastectomy decrease significantly. It is usually the only option women who have suffered cancer have to regain the shape of their breasts.

What Can the People Undergoing This Procedure Expect?

If you’ve survived cancer and want to undergo breast cancer reconstruction surgery, you obviously expect a lot, and doctor Faisal has the experience and credentials to give excellent results. 


  • The augmentation operation will include increasing implants to replace the tissues you’ve lost - this part will increase the size of your breast and return it to normal levels. 
  • The lifting parts include incisions to make sure the surface skin looks completely natural. A few techniques are used to achieve the best result - depending on how severe the mastectomy has been.  
  • And last but not least, nipple reconstruction techniques are used to recreate the nipples and give them a natural look. This concludes the reconstruction of the whole breast, and after the healing process is done, you’ll be amazed by the results.

Am I a Suitable Candidate?

Of course, this is one of the most complex surgical procedures out there - the doctor will attempt to recreate the breasts. It is miles more complicated than a simple breast augmentation, and that’s why it needs a candidate who can undergo the surgery successfully. 


  • When did you go through the mastectomy? Cancer takes a huge toll on the body and healing from it takes time. That’s why the reconstruction surgery needs to take place a considerable time after you’ve healed from cancer. Talk to the doctor about it to get more specific advice. 
  • Healing from the mastectomy isn’t the only thing that matter, you need to be in good health regardless of that. If you have any allergies or medical condition that could cause you to bleed or prevent you from healing, the doctor needs to know about it ASAP.

How to Prepare?

You need to make some lifestyle changes a week or two before the surgery - this is important to ensure there are no toxic chemicals in your body, and your body is ready to immediately recover post-operation: 


  • Stop smoking and drinking at least two weeks before the surgery. It is no secret those are bad for your health, but they are especially bad if you’re going to undergo a major surgery soon. 
  • Ensure you have a trusted one to take care of you and keep you company in the week after the surgery. You need time to recover and the surgery will prevent you from doing most physical activities, having a person helping you will make life much easier.

Recovery Time and Healing

Recovery will take at least a month and will sometimes last up to two months. During this period, your breasts will be swollen, inflammation and itching will be common, too. This is why it is extremely important for Doctor Faisal to do regular checkups to ensure you are on your path to recovery and good health. The post-operation care package he offers includes regular checkups and status updates. You won’t need to worry about any complications or problems.

Over 2000 satisfied patients

I had surgery in February with Doctor Faisal and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I went from 64kg to 95kg with gestational diabetes during two back to back pregnancies at age 40, and ended up with massive abdominal separation. Doctor Faisal was able to perform an extremely extensive abdominal muscle and hernia repair, combined with lipo and a cosmetic tummy tuck that has completely transformed not only my appearance but my confidence and physical strength also. My body now looks better than it did before I had children. I conducted extensive research for over 3 years on best plastic surgeon Dubai before I chose Doctor Faisal based on his qualification, experience, confidence in his ability to perform this surgery without the use of a mesh as well as his extremely reassuring manner. The recovery went smoothly and my scar is healing beautifully. Its low, neat, and I didn't experience any healing complications. To anyone that is on the fence, or hesitating about moving forwards with such a procedure, I definitely say- go for it! I wish I'd done it 3 years ago and gotten back into a bikini sooner. Thanks Doctor Faisal, I will miss you!

- I had my surgery just over a year ago, and I can honestly say that I would not have gone ahead with such a life-changing surgery if it wasn't for Dr Faisal and his amazing team. From my very first visit, I knew that if I did go ahead with the surgery it would be with him. Instantly he made me feel at ease and knew that he would take care of me through the entire process. The numerous visits, messages, emails and phone calls were all answered without hesitation and the entire team provided a fully comprehensive service. Dr Faisal, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for helping me make this monumental decision and making my life better for it, I wouldn't have been able to feel the way I do about myself right now without you! I'm trying my best to not write an essay here, but I know these mere words do not do justice fr all that you and your team have done for me! Hopefully I will come by for a visit the next time I'm in Dubai! Sakira... Fellow LFC Supporter!

After extensive research and consultations for Plastic surgeons in Dubai, and a failed attempt a couple of years back, I finally encountered the amazing Dr.Faisal Salim, and I couldn’t be happier of my choice. It was a tough decision, to whom I would entrust this very important event in my life. Most of the information provided by the plastic surgeons I’ve met in Dubai, is more or less the same, but Dr.Faisal stood out from everyone else right away from my first consultation. He is extremely caring, empathic and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was ready to answer all my questions, some of them even before I asked! He reassured me and made me feel at ease. I knew right away after my first consultation that he was the one. We met several times after that, to discuss in further details my decision to go ahead with the surgery, and he was always outstanding, as the first time we met. He asked what were my expectations and what I wanted the outcome to be, my worries and fears, and then he explained what was realistically possible and what could be achieved. his expertise is just outstanding. Any doubt I had thought the entire process, he was always there, even when abroad. This means the world to someone who’s worried, scared or just stressed out. He was always very honest, approachable and caring. The aftercare was as outstanding as the pre operative care, and the results? I can’t be happier then I am now :) A shout out to his entire team at euromed clinic as well, the nurses and especially his co-ordinator Yasmina, she is just outstanding! a level of care and professionalism that one doesn’t encounter very often, till the late hours on the night before my surgery, she was sending messages, reassuring me was always available throughout the entire process. If you’re in that phase, were you still are not sure who to entrust your surgery too, After you meet with Dr.Faisal Salim, you should look nor worry anymore, he is the one. I can’t recommend him enough after what he’s done for me. Thank you Dr.Faisal!

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal and his team was outstanding. I had several consultations with different doctors before finally meeting Dr. Faisal. His personality and expertise totally convinced me to go ahead with my operation without any doubts. He took extensive time during the several consultations, where we discussed the reasonable expectations. Dr. Faisal managed to create the exact result I have wished for where other doctors told me differently and I couldn’t be happier. He has definitely exceeded my expectations. My healing process was extremely smooth without any complications and pain. Dr. Faisal is very compassionate, emphatic and caring. He takes a lot of time for each appointment and the aftercare was superb. I could not recommend him enough. The whole team at Euromed is extremely friendly. Yasmina has been an amazing patient coordinator and I thank her for her kindness and flexibility.

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal was more than outstanding! It took me a while to decide on a specific surgeon, and I had already seen many before I decided to proceed with Dr. Faisal. From the first appointment, his honesty, care and straightforwardness immediately put me at ease. I had felt I will be in good hands, and that was a prerequisite for me to go for it. We had several appointments before the surgery, and he explained everything so clearly with realistic expectations. On the day of the surgery, he was quite caring, calm and compassionate. Post the surgery, took all the time to look after me, and answer all my questions. He patiently endured my fussiness, impatience and always assured me. I was quite happy with the results, and his availability for the post-surgery follow-ups. I had a big surgery, which Dr. Faisal handles perfectly so I can’t recommend him enough. To add, Dr. Faisal has the most amazing coordinator (Yasmine), always been there, answered all my questions with care and support

I met Dr Faisal last year whilst on a quest to find a surgeon to complete a full tummy tuck, gynecomastia and lypo. I instantly felt at ease when meeting Dr Faisal and after a discussion he pointed out what was and wasn’t needed, he suggested a plan and showed me what I could expect by his previous surgeries. I had made my mind up and decided to choose him to move forward with. We met a few more times and he was very clear what I should do prior to surgery and made himself available with his mobile number for any further questions I might have. the morning of the surgery he seemed very focused and tried to help me relax and put me at ease, I felt good and trusted him fully. i was happy with the after care and was surprised with the speed of the healing process, he was regularly checking in and told me how it all went, over the next few weeks we met for appointments and dressing changes. It’s been 5 months now and I’m so happy with the results, I feel way more confident and I feel the results are even better than I expected. Great surgeon, would definitely recommend him!
