Breast Flap Reconstruction Gallery
About this patient
This 51-year-old woman from Chandler, AZ had bilateral mastectomy for recurrent breast CA. She opted for the DIEP flap breast reconstruction due to her previous history of radiation therapy. This utilized her own lower abdominal skin and fatty tissue, which was able to spare all of her muscle function. She is very pleased with her breast shape and size. She reports no deficits in strength or range of motion and feels more confident and whole with her reconstructed breasts, which should be a long-standing reconstruction. She went on to complete her breast reconstruction with nipple reconstruction and areola tattoo by our office. She is shown here at 18 months postoperatively with outstanding shape and appearance of her reconstructed breasts.
