I came across a website that also provides a treatment that I think would be good for depression.

With more women than ever choosing to undergo mastectomy for treatment or prevention of breast cancer, the desire for a better type of reconstruction has grown. Dr. Cassileth's innovative technique allows women to awaken from mastectomy surgery with an intact breast, and only a small scar.

It is found that breast cancer survivors are prone to developing depression. That is why health care providers are vigilant in monitoring survivors, so that depression can be avoided.
