Breast Reconstruction by Latissimus Flap with Implant – Case 36

Breast Reconstruction by Latissimus Flap with Implant – Case 36

This case demonstrates how effectively latissimus flap surgery (together with implants) can hep to obtain very cosmetic outcomes in post mastectomy breast reconstruction.

This patient had biopsy scars which were relatively far from the nipple complex and the skin requirements for cancer removal in her case dictated (even in modified skin sparing mastectomy) that a flap be used.
