Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

Breast Reconstruction

About Us

The breast reconstruction service offers patients who have been through breast cancer treatment or preventative surgery following genetic testing a number of options.

Some of them will have reconstruction surgery done soon after their initial surgery, while others will have their operations much later.

A dedicated team, which works in close collaboration with breast care teams across south, west and mid Wales, will guide the patient through the entire process, supporting them not only clinically but also emotionally and psychologically.

The team includes Wales' first Breast Reconstruction Nurse Specialist Julia Warwick. She has undertaken a 3D nipple tattooing course, helping her to provide even more realistic scar-covering work for women post reconstruction.

The team also puts on events such as monthly breast reconstruction talks open to anyone who is considering or wanting to explore options of reconstruction further.

The breast reconstruction service uses a team-led approach, employing the skills of all members of the multi-disciplinary plastics team.
