Dealing with breast cancer and its ramifications is a very trying time in a woman’s life. One’s breasts are often a central part of their identity, and a mastectomy is a difficult concept to grapple with. Using reconstructive breast surgery, we are able to ease the process of cancer treatment and help women feel a little more like themselves.
An essential technique involved in many reconstructive breast surgery operations is the flap technique. A type of grafting, flap techniques feature the use of a section of autologous (from the patient’s own body) donor tissue to rebuild the breast. Tissues that may be present in a flap include skin, muscle tissue, and fatty tissue.
