* Sometimes the first method of choice for breast reconstruction just doesn’t work out. This woman had a right mastectomy for breast cancer and tissue expander breast reconstruction. Her tissue expander reconstruction just did not work out in her case.The tissue expander had to be removed, however she had other options. The best option at this point was to use the tissue on her abdomen to reconstruct her breast. Her surgeon did a double pedicle TRAM flap breast reconstruction. She had a breast lift and augmentation on her opposite breast for symmetry. This is the beauty of having multiple methods of reconstruction available. If one does not work out, most likely something else will. As you can see her final result was very pretty.
