DIEP Flap Breast Cancer Reconstruction Surgery
DIEP Flap Breast Surgery
40-year-old woman who has a history of BRCA 2 positive. During her initial consultation we reviewed all breast reconstruction techniques, comparing and contrasting device dependent reconstructions with autologous tissues. Drawings and diagrams were utilized to better assist the patient's understanding of the procedure(s) with risks, benefits, and alternatives discussed in full detail. Emphasis was placed on making sure our patient understood the length of surgery required and patient admission details as well as the likelihood of a longer recovery with autologous tissue reconstructions. Patient had a B cup breast with a nipple to sternal distance of 26 and 26.5 left and right respectively, moderate ptosis, and a symmetrical shape. It was determined at her consultation that she was an excellent candidate for autologous tissue reconstruction (DIEP FLAP Reconstruction). After photographs are just 10 months after patient's DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction Surgery. She is very happy with her results. More
