Procedure Details

Patient is a 47 year old pre-menopausal white female of with a diagnosis of left breast cancer. She decided to have a Bilateral Breast Mastectomy. Patient has a very strong family history of cancer. The patient was found to have calcifications in the lower aspect of the Left breast on mammogram and underwent a stereotactic core biopsy revealing DCIS. An additional MRI was also performed prior to her surgery which showed the DCIS in the lower outer aspect of the left breast and also some enhancement in the right breast, however right breast was found to be benign. Patient initially had bilateral mastectomy with bilateral insertion of Tissue Expanders (smooth Natrelle) and Alloderm. Four months after her initial surgery she was ready for her second stage of breast cancer reconstruction. Patient had bilateral removal of her tissue expanders with placement of silicone gel smooth soft touch Natrelle 520cc implants. Patient also had subcutaneous tissue transfer (fat transfer) to bilateral breasts at the same time we placed her breast implants. Fat transfer can add volume to the upper pole of the breasts. Patient is very happy with her reconstruction results.
