Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction Techniques
Today’s breast reconstruction techniques are ever changing, and there are now multiple ways to regain the breast shape that you want. With autogenous breast reconstruction, the breast is reconstructed from your own tissues. This technique yields results that not only look but feel natural too. There are no prostheses that are necessary, and you can feel confident knowing that your breasts are naturally yours.
Microsurgical breast reconstruction involves the transportation of a “flap” of a patient’s tissue. This tissue can be comprised of skin, fat, muscle, or blood vessels and is removed from the area around the abdominals or from the buttocks. The tissue is attached to the chest to recreate the ‘chest mound’ or breasts.
When compared to traditional breast reconstruction techniques, a microsurgical flap allows for the abdominal tissues to heal more easily. In addition, the results look beautiful and natural, and allow for countless women to regain confidence post-cancer treatment.
Microsurgical Flaps include:
- DIEP Flap
- SIEA Flap
- Free TRAM Flap
- Muscle sparing Free TRAM Flap
