Breast Reconstruction Techniques
The most common technique for post-mastectomy reconstruction is the insertion of an implant after a balloon expander has stretched the skin over the breast enough to allow room for an implant. Through a tiny valve beneath the skin, salt-water solution is periodically injected into the expander over many weeks or months. After the skin over the breast area has stretched enough, a more permanent implant is inserted. Breast in both male and female consists of glands embedded in fat.
An alternative approach to implant reconstruction involves the creation of a new breast by surgically moving a section (flap) of skin, fat, and muscle from another part of the patient’s body – usually from the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or upper back.
The flap procedure is much more complex than skin expansion. Scars are left at both the tissue donor site and at the reconstructed breast, and recovery takes longer than with an implant. On the other hand, when the breast is reconstructed entirely from a woman’s own tissue, the results are generally more natural.
It is recommended to consult your board-certified surgeon who will advise you of which breast reconstruction surgery technique will be the most appropriate option for you.
