MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and patients have much to celebrate when it comes to advances in reconstructive surgery. New techniques and more natural implants are giving women more options and better outcomes after mastectomies. Erica Virgil was just 31 and the mother of one-year-old twins when she was diagnosed with early stage two breast cancer in 2014. She had no family history of breast cancer, but decided to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction. During her mastectomy surgery she was fitted with temporary implants or expanders to begin the process.The expanders are inflated over time to allow room for permanent implants and let the patient decide their new size.
