Patient - Breast Reconstruction

Click on an image below to see a larger version.


This case spans nearly 13 years, going back to 1992 when this 35 year old patient was first diagnosed with cancer of the left breast. She is shown before her mastectomy, marked for removal of the nipple/areola and biopsy site.

Reconstruction was planned using a flap of skin and muscle from the back (latissimus dorsi muscle) with a small, textured saline implant.


Patient underwent a planned preventative mastectomy on the right with immediate reconstruction using an abdominal flap (TRAM flap). Cancer was found in this breast and she underwent an immediate mastectomy, without reconstruction. After a course of chemotherapy and radiation, she came back to finish the reconstruction on the right.

This photograph shows her after the completed reconstruction. The left breast has held up beautifully with only the one implant exchange for a leaking implant, and a single repigmentation of the areola. So far, she continues to be free of cancer.
