This patient underwent bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer and staged reconstruction with a tissue expander, ADM, and bilateral de-epithelialized flaps.
I have developed a unique solution to help women with sagging, larger breasts who must have a mastectomy. Typically, these women have the poorest cosmetic outcomes with a traditional mastectomy due to saggy excess skin. My approach uses vertical and horizontal inframammary incisions to shape the new breast as a breast lift would.
She is shown with expander’s right after the mastectomy, and again after the nipple reconstruction and shape refinement. A great result.
