Reconstruction Notes: This patient had a right mastectomy with DIEP reconstruction. Later, she had her left breast reduced to match her reconstructed breast. In a third stage, her nipple was reconstructed and tatooed.
This patient had breast cancer in her left breast. She had an oncoplastic breast reduction to reconstruct her left breast after her lumpectomy and reduce the size of her right breast to achieve symmetry.
This patient had a right sided breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy planned and was going to require a large volume of resection followed by radiation. To avoid postoperative and post-radiation deformity, she was referred for an Oncoplastic Breast Reduction.
Months Post-Op: 6
This patient had a left breast lumpectomy. During the same procedure, she had an oncoplastic breast reduction of the left breast to fill in the defect caused by the lumpectomy and to prevent deformity. At the same time, she had a reduction of her right breast to achieve symmetry.
This patient had a right sided breast cancer. She needed a large lumpectomy that would be followed by radiation. An Oncoplastic Breast Reduction was performed to prevent surgical and radiation deformities and to reconstruct her breasts in a symmetrical way. The right breast is left slightly larger in these cases because radiation will cause the breast on this side to shrink a bit.
This patient had bilateral mastectomies with immediate reconstruction using latissimus dorsi muscle flaps and implants. Her nipples were recently reconstructed and tatooed in these pictures. This is an early result two weeks post procedure.
Tissue Expanders Used: Mentor Tissue expander
Implants Used: Mentor smooth round gel implants
This patient had an implant reconstruction with a saline implant on the right breast twenty years ago. She had nothing done on her right breast at the time. Her implant deflated suddenly one afternoon and she presented to the office. She underwent an implant exchange on the right, using a gel implant this time, and a mastopexy on the left breast with a vertical pattern (or lollypop) skin incision. The patient opted against having a nipple reconstruction.
Months Post-Op: 2
Implants Used: gel or “gummy bear” implant
Reconstruction Notes: This is a revision of a reconstruction that was done elsewhere twenty years ago.
This patient had lumpectomy with radiation for breast cancer. She had marked asymmetry and deformities. These were corrected by reconstructing her left breast with implant reconstruction and performing a symmetry procedure on her right breast with a mastopexy and augment procedure on the right.
