Procedure Details


Breast Cancer Reconstruction

46 year old pre-menopausal female of with a diagnosis of right breast cancer: DCIS, extensive, requiring total mastectomy on the right breast. Patient decided to do a bilateral mastectomy with immediate Breast DIEP Flap (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Flap) Surgery. Patient is G3P3 with Puerto Rican decent. Patient does have a family history of breast and ovarian cancer, but did test for genetic testing and was negative. Patient had been getting mammography routinely and her most recent one showed calcifications. Patient then had a biopsy that confirmed 2 clustered areas of calcification. Patient also had an MRI that showed that the DCIS was extensive. Patient wanted to have a skin sparing mastectomy, and was not a candidate for nipple sparing mastectomy. Patient wished to not have reconstruction with an Implant or Tissue Expander. In the photograph shown please note the patient has not had nipple reconstruction as of yet. Nipple Reconstruction can be done and is covered by insurance. Nipple Reconstruction is an outpatient (same day) surgery with minimal downtime. The after photographs shown here are one year after her DIEP Flap breast cancer reconstruction surgery. Patient is feeling amazing and healthy!
