If breast removal is likely, a breast surgeon from our team and a plastic surgeon will discuss the various reconstruction options with the patient. The patient’s wishes and ideas help determine the further procedure.
Our specialists use either silicone prostheses or autologous tissue for breast reconstruction, usually from
- the abdomen (DIEP, TRAM flap)
- the thigh (TMG, PAP flap)
- the buttocks (S-GAP, I-GAP flap)
- the back (latissimus dorsi flap plasty).
Reconstruction from the body’s own tissue is carried out by our colleagues in plastic surgery.
Breast reduction (reductionplasty)
In the case of asymmetries (differences in size) after breast cancer surgery, a breast reduction on the opposite side can be useful. Our breast surgeons can perform the procedure.
