This young woman had cancer of the right breast. She underwent a right mastectomy and reconstruction with immediate placement of a tissue expander.

This was later replaced with a permanent implant and she underwent nipple/areola reconstruction using a nipple sharing technique with medical tattooing of the areola. Since the left nipple was generous, reducing it improved the left breast and provided nipple tissue for the right (the Robin Hood principle of plastic surgery). She also had breast augmentation on the left.

Her implants are McGhan textured, anatomically-shaped, saline implants; 390 cc on the right and 230 cc on the left. She is shown just after her breast biopsy and after the completed reconstruction.
