Types of Breast Reconstruction

Breast Implant

It is the same procedure as the general breast implant. A breast implant is placed beneath the muscle on the chest. This is a simple procedure and easy to diagnose cancer.

Breast Implant after Tissue Expansion

This method is to place a tissue expander, slowly expand it to the desired size to allow the skin to stretch then place a breast implant after 3 to 4 months. It has a low risk of capsular contracture and gives a natural breast shape.

Flap Reconstruction

Flap Reconstruction is to use the tissues from the tummy, back, thighs or buttocks. It has almost no risk of capsular contracture and/or adverse reaction. However, it is a complicated procedure with a long recovery period and may leave visible scars.

Abdominal Flap

TRAM (transverse rectus abdominis muscle) flap is used to move the skin, blood vessels and abdominal muscle to the breast. It is suitable for the middle-age women and can show a result of tummy tuck.

Back Flap

It is to use the skin, blood vessels and muscle from the back. However, it is usually performed together with the breast implant since the volume of the back tissue is smaller than of the TRAM flap.

Gluteal Free Flap

Since women have a large amount of fat on the buttlocks, the skin, fat and muscles from that area can be used for breast reconstruction. However, it is very challenging procedure and has a high risk of failure.
