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 DIEP flap breast reconstruction. We were able to utilize her skin and fat of her belly, much like that used in a tummy tuck, in this complex, microsurgical procedure. It often looks, feels, and moves much like a natural breast, since it is your own tissue, and will increase and decrease in size with weight changes. 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.
