Breast Reconstruction by Tissue Expansion / Implant – Case 54
Complicated cases include: those where patients had previous mastectomy without reconstruction and then are found to have breast cancer in the opposite breast or just simply elect to later remove the opposite breast from fear or growing anxiety about repeated testing for further cancer development.
This patient is shown in her pre-op views several years after her right mastectomy and just prior to left mastectomy. the potential for dramatic asymmetries exist in these cases. Post-op views demonstrate, after bilateral reconstruction, successful pleasing results from implant reconstruction.
