Breast Reconstruction by Latissimus Flap with Implant – Case 35

Breast Reconstruction by Latissimus Flap with Implant – Case 35

A very challenging case:

Top Row: Patient presented with biopsy proven breast cancer of the right breast and benign biopsy of the left breast that was done elsewhere and healed poorly.

Bottom Row: her reconstruction after right mastectomy included latissimus flap with implant, nipple reconstruction and eventually correction of left breast disfigurement by breast lift with implant. Post-op views bottom row.

Critical in post mastectomy reconstruction is camouflage of potential upper pole deformities, successfully achieved here. (mastectomy patients who view these photos can appreciate what I am saying).

A very nice final outcome for this very athletic, multisport woman.
