Patient - Breast Reconstruction

Click on an image below to see a larger version.


This 41 year old patient presented with an extremely difficult situation for breast reconstruction. She had a left mastectomy for breast cancer and a right mastectomy for prevention of future cancer because of her cancer type. She also had radiation therapy to the left side (note the darkened skin).

Her slim figure made it impossible to build two breasts with her own tissue.


The left breast was reconstructed with an abdominal (TRAM) flap with later tissue expansion and an implant, and her right with tissue expansion and an implant. I first saw her in July 2002. She underwent a total of 5 procedures; 3 to build the two breasts mounds, and 2 to reconstruct the nipples and areolae.

She is shown in May 2005. While symmetry is not perfect, she has a good match, the breasts are soft, and she can wear any clothes she wishes without a prosthesis.
