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 bilateral immediate latissimus dorsi flap with tissue expander breast reconstruction due to her previous history of radiation therapy. She then subsequently had her tissue expanders exchanged for silicone gel implants. 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. 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.
