Autologous/Flap Reconstruction

Autologous reconstruction (sometimes called autogenous reconstruction) uses tissue — skin, fat, and sometimes muscle — from another place on your body to form a breast shape.

History left breast cancer post-mastectomy.  Before and after DIEP flap reconstruction left breast with right breast reduction to C-cup size for symmetry.

Atypical ductal hyperplasia left breast and strong family history breast cancer.  Before and after bilateral nipple sparing mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction.


Breast Implant Reconstruction

After a mastectomy, one of the ways that a breast can be reconstructed is with an implant. A breast implant is a round, flexible silicone shell filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Breast implants can either be placed over the chest muscle (pectoralis) or underneath part or all of the chest muscle. The implant replaces the breast tissue that is removed during the mastectomy, restoring the shape and volume of the breast.

Right breast cancer.  Before and after bilateral skin sparing mastectomy and direct to implant breast reconstruction.  Subsequent 3-D nipple tattooing.



Corrective Breast Reconstruction

The goal of corrective (or “revision”) surgery is to fix problems that occurred during or after breast reconstruction surgery that impact your quality of life or your health.

History right breast cancer and silicone implant reconstruction with grade 4 capsular contracture.  Deformity corrected with Stacked DIEP flap reconstruction right breast and SIEA flap augmentation left breast for symmetry.

History right breast cancer post bilateral mastectomy and bilateral DIEP with failed right flap.  Presented for corrective surgery with subsequent right SGAP flap and completion with bilateral nipple reconstruction and 3-D tattooing for pigment restoration.
