New law provides for the mandatory reconstructive plastic surgery of the breast by the Unified Health System (SUS) in cases of mutilation resulting from cancer treatment (Law No. 12,802) was sanctioned by the President of the Republic, Dilma Rousseff. According to the text, published on Thursday (25) in the Official Gazette (DOU), when there is technical condition, the reconstruction will be performed at the time surgery is performed to remove the cancer.

In case of impossibility of immediate reconstruction, the patient will be referred for follow-up and have guaranteed the surgery immediately after achieving clinical conditions required. The new law amends the No. 9797, in force since May 6, 1999.

To the Secretary of Health Care, Helvécio Magellan, the measure reinforces what is already being practiced in the NHS, based on guidance from the Ministry of Health The recovery procedure post-mastectomy breast is already offered by the public health. It is up to the medical staff to assess whether it is possible to perform both procedures during the same operation. The decision is based on several factors, including the condition of the affected area to prevent infection or rejection of the prosthesis, said the secretary.

The country now has 181 health services accredited and authorized by the Ministry of Health to perform reconstructive surgery. In two years, 11 new services have been enabled. In 2012, there were 1,394 SUS breast reconstructive surgeries.
