Breast Flap Reconstruction Gallery
About this patient
This 53-year-old woman from Scottsdale, AZ sought immediate breast reconstruction following her bilateral mastectomy. She did have a previous history of breast cancer, which was treated with lumpectomy and radiation therapy. She was a candidate for DIEP flap-based reconstruction to ameliorate the damage caused by the radiation as well as restore her breasts. She is content with her reconstructed breasts, which show a natural-appearing shape and feel of her reconstructed breasts. She had minimal downtime and was back to routine activities and exercise after just a few weeks time. Postoperative photographs at 10 months show very aesthetically-pleasing reconstructed breasts.
