This patient has a severe expression of Poland's Syndrome, in which the breast and underlying pectoralis major muscle are absent.

Breast Reconstruction - Dr. Richard Bosshardt

She had undergone two previous attempts at reconstruction elsewhere, without success, due to infection.


The right breast was lifted and the left breast reconstructed using a tissue expander, followed by insertion of a permanent implant. The nipple/areola complex was reconstructed using skin from the right areola and a small flap to simulate the nipple. The implant is a Mentor adjustable saline implant with a volume of 730 cc.

She wears a D cup bra and fills both cups very evenly. This patient takes a long time to settle her scars, which remain very red for a long time.
