Autologous Breast Reconstruction

There are a number of breast reconstruction methods that utilize your body’s own tissue to restore the breasts after a mastectomy. Skin, fat, and/or muscle are transferred as a composite flap to recreate the shape of the breast. Often times nipple reconstruction can be performed during the same procedure, recreating your entire breast in a single-stage procedure. A perforator flap is a specific type of reconstruction in which muscle is not taken, but simply separated to help transfer your body’s tissue to the chest.
