Breast Reconstruction by Tissue Expansion / Implant – EDe

Case Study

In order to camouflage a mastectomy defect, a modest increase in breast size is usually required when undergoing mastectomy for breast cancer. The patient is shown after bilateral mastectomy and bilateral tissue expander reconstruction, later replaced with implants and bilateral nipple reconstruction with micro-pigmentation of the reconstructed nipple and areola. When the scars fade, she will look as if she has had cosmetic breast enhancement, rather than potentially disfiguring mastectomy surgery.
