Breast Implant Reconstruction Gallery
About this patient
This 43-year-old woman from Scottsdale, AZ opted for bilateral breast reconstruction following her mastectomy. She wished to be a little larger than prior to her surgery and chose to undergo tissue expander breast reconstruction. After adequate expansion via weekly expansion of the device, she had her second stage of the procedure performed with silicone gel, round implants in the submuscular position and acellular dermal matrix. After photos at 2 years demonstrate an excellent shape to her reconstructed breasts along with appropriate size to fit her body habitus. She is very happy with her reconstructed breasts with very minimal, if any, complaints throughout the reconstructive process. She stated that she has increased confidence and a feeling of wholeness after her initial diagnosis.
