For many breast cancer patients, beating the disease is just the first step in their journey. The struggles often continue afterwards, especially when it comes to determining whether or not to have breast reconstruction.
While there are several options available, women are often left with a number of questions. Is reconstruction right for me? When should I bring in a plastic surgeon? What kinds of reconstruction are available to me?

Lisa is joinged by Dr. Emily McLaughlin, a plastic surgeon and breast reconstruction patient herself to talk about these important issues.
