Breast Flap Reconstruction Gallery
About this patient
This is a 59-year-old woman from Paradise Valley, AZ underwent a unilateral mastectomy for breast CA. She chose to have an immediate latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap breast reconstruction with tissue expander. This was followed by a same-day second-stage exchange for a silicone, cohesive gel implant. She also completed her reconstruction with a nipple and areola reconstruction. She is very pleased with the size and shape of her reconstructed breast in comparison with her natural breast. She has no complaints of weakness or range of motion difficulty. She continues to swim and play tennis on a regular basis. Postoperative photos at 2 years demonstrate an excellent shape and symmetry with a natural-appearing result to her original breast.
