Latisimus flap

 

Upper Row: Pre-Op
Lower Row: Post-Op (three months)

This patient had a exploration for a Perforator Free Flap Breast Reconstruction. She did not have healthy circulation to the flap so it was discarded. She benefited by having a tummy tuck from the procedure. We later did a latisimus flap with an implant and nipple reconstruction. She also had a breast lift done on the opposite side.

 

This patient had bilateral subcutaneous mastectomies for multiple high risk tumors. She had such small pectoralis muscles that they would not adequately cover implants. Latisimus muscle flaps were placed in both breasts to provide tissue and to cover small saline implants. She is three months post-operative.
