Breast Implant and Fat Transfer after Tissue Expander Reconstruction

Procedure Details


Breast Expander to Implant

51-year-old female with a diagnosis of left breast cancer. Patient had decided to have a left breast mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. Patient had a suspicious mammogram which led to other findings. She had gotten a biopsy which then confirmed her diagnosis. Patient also had an MRI which showed that lesion as well.  Prior to the imaging, patient had felt a lump on her left breast. Patient is BRCA negative. Patient is genetic negative for breast cancer susceptibility. Prior to surgery, patient was aware she may need radiation therapy depending on the type of cancer she has, this would be determined after her surgery. Patient was set to have chemotherapy treatment. At the time of consultation, patient let us know she wanted to be the same size on her left breast as she is on the right breast, considering she is not doing anything to her right breast. Prior to surgery patient was a 34B/C cup size for bra. Her first surgery was in June 2020 with an Insertion of Left Breast Tissue Expander and Alloderm. The second surgery was 8 months later and consisted of removing the breast tissue expander and placing a 560cc smooth round silicone gel breast implant along with subcutaneous tissue transfer (fat transfer) to the breast. The after photographs shown here are almost 2 months following surgery. Patient is feeling and looking amazing!
