Breast reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is done by placing a breast implant or by using your own tissue (skin, fat, muscle) taken from other parts of the body. You will receive reimbursement from your health insurance for breast reconstruction.

Health insurance

Breast reconstruction is fully reimbursed if you choose a double room or shared room. Supplements are only charged for a single room. Neither the doctor nor the hospital can force you to choose a single room.


Breast reconstruction using your own tissue usually takes place in three phases within one year (if there are no complications).
