GOAL: To appreciate the significant advances and current techniques in breast reconstruction after mastectomy and realize the positive physical and emotional benefits to the patient. OBJECTIVES: 1. Understand basic and anatomic principles of breast reconstruction. 2. Discuss the options for breast reconstruction: a) immediate versus delayed; b) autologous tissue versus implant; and c) stages of reconstruction and ancillary procedures. 3. Provide a comprehensive overview of the risks and benefits of, as well as the alternatives to, each approach so primary care physicians can counsel patients effectively.  (+info)

Effect of infiltration with ropivacaine on blood loss during reduction mammoplasty. (2/282)

Ropivacaine is a new aminoamide local anaesthetic agent. Unlike other agents in its class, such as bupivacaine, it has been found to be vasoconstrictive. We have sought to investigate if this property is clinically useful and may reduce surgical blood loss. Reduction mammoplasty is a procedure in which considerable blood loss may occur. We have compared pre-incision infiltration of ropivacaine 75 mg in 0.9% saline 60 ml with the current practice of infiltration with bupivacaine 75 mg in 0.9% saline 60 ml and epinephrine (adrenaline) 5 micrograms ml-1. We studied five subjects; each received both solutions by infiltration, one to each breast, in random order and both the operating surgeon and anaesthetist were blind to the solution given. For data analysis, blood loss was expressed in ml/kg of tissue excised. There was no significant difference between the two regimens for duration of surgery or amount of tissue excised; however, ropivacaine was associated with markedly greater intraoperative blood loss than bupivacaine (median 696 (range 305-1366) ml kg-1 vs 300 (169-608) ml kg-1; P = 0.04, Wilcoxon rank sum test). Postoperative blood loss was not significantly different between groups (116 (14-173) ml kg-1 vs 98 (13-332) ml kg-1; P = 0.69, Wilcoxon rank sum test). We conclude that the vasoconstrictive properties of ropivacaine were not sufficiently great to merit its use as a sole agent for infiltration before reduction mammoplasty.  (+info)

Low-intensity laser therapy for benign fibrotic lumps in the breast following reduction mammaplasty. (3/282)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Fibrotic masses in the breast secondary to fat necrosis or hematoma are a complication of breast reduction mammaplasty. The treatment commonly recommended for this condition is early surgical debridement of necrotic tissue from the entire area, which causes scarring. This case report describes the use of low-intensity laser therapy for fibrotic lumps following reduction mammaplasty. CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient was a 46-year-old woman who had breast reduction surgery 80 days prior to referral for physical therapy. At the time of referral, the largest mass was 8.0 cm in diameter. The patient reported pain and said she was distressed about the breast disfigurement. Laser irradiation was initiated at an energy density (ED) of 20 J/cm2 and a pulse repetition rate of 5,000 pulses per second. The laser settings were adjusted during the 8-month treatment period. The final ED was 50 J/cm2. OUTCOMES: The mass was 33% of its original size after 3 treatments over the initial 11-day period. Pain relief was immediate. The rate of resolution decreased after the initial period. The patient had some tissue thickening at the time of discharge after 6 months of treatment. DISCUSSION: This case demonstrates the potential use of laser therapy as a treatment for benign breast lumps following mammaplasty.  (+info)

Unilateral gestational macromastia--an unusual presentation of a rare disorder. (4/282)

Macromastia (mammary gigantism) is an uncommon clinical entity. Macromastia occurring during pregnancy (gestational macromastia) is rare. A case of unilateral gestational macromastia is reported which required reduction mammoplasty. We documented hyperprolactinaemia in the patient. This case report is particularly interesting because, to our knowledge, no such case has previously been reported.  (+info)

Initial experience with breast reconstruction using the transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap: a study of 45 patients. (5/282)

Breast conserving surgery for breast cancer has led to an increased interest in reconstruction following mastectomy. The transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap has been proven to give good results in terms of restoration of body symmetry with near normal contour and consistency. Furthermore, immediate reconstruction has the advantage of a single procedure with less psychological morbidity, and reduction in hospital stay and overall complication rate. The aim of this study was to review our experience with the transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap procedure an initial series of 45 patients. The overall complication rate of 27% is similar to that reported in the literature, with no total flap loss and nine patients with partial flap loss. There was no delay in commencement of adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy and we believe our ability to detect local recurrence has not been compromised. We consider that immediate breast reconstruction is now an integral part of the surgical treatment of breast cancer.  (+info)

Elevated expression of the CC chemokine regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) in advanced breast carcinoma. (6/282)

Breast carcinoma is the most common malignant disease among women and the second most lethal one. In search for a better understanding of the role of cellular mediators in the progression of this disease, we investigated the potential involvement of the CC chemokine Regulated on Activation, Normal T Cell Expressed and Secreted (RANTES) in breast carcinoma progression. To this end, RANTES expression was determined in breast tumor cell lines and in sections of breast carcinomas, followed by analysis of the incidence and intensity of its expression in different stages of the disease. Our study reveals that high and physiologically relevant levels of RANTES are constitutively produced by T47D and MCF-7 breast tumor cell lines. Analysis of RANTES expression in sections of breast carcinomas demonstrates a high incidence of RANTES expression in epithelial tumor cells; the chemokine was expressed in 74% of the sections. RANTES expression was rarely detected in normal duct epithelial cells or in epithelial cells that constitute benign breast lumps, which were located in proximity to tumor cells. High incidence and intensity of RANTES expression were detected in sections of most of the patients with stage II and stage III of the disease (expression was detected in 83 and 83.3%, respectively), whereas RANTES was expressed at a lower incidence and intensity in sections of patients with stage I of breast carcinoma (55% of the cases). Most importantly, the expression of RANTES was minimally detected in sections of patients diagnosed with benign breast disorders and of women that underwent reduction mammoplasty (15.4% of the cases). These results indicate that the expression of RANTES is directly correlated with a more advanced stage of disease, suggesting that RANTES may be involved in breast cancer progression. Moreover, it is possible that in patients diagnosed with benign breast disorders, RANTES expression may be indicative of an ongoing, but as yet undetectable, malignant process.  (+info)

Proteomic definition of normal human luminal and myoepithelial breast cells purified from reduction mammoplasties. (7/282)

Normal human luminal and myoepithelial breast cells separately purified from a set of 10 reduction mammoplasties by using a double antibody magnetic affinity cell sorting and Dynabead immunomagnetic technique were used in two-dimensional gel proteome studies. A total of 43,302 proteins were detected across the 20 samples, and a master image for each cell type comprising a total of 1,738 unique proteins was derived. Differential analysis identified 170 proteins that were elevated 2-fold or more between the two breast cell types, and 51 of these were annotated by tandem mass spectrometry. Muscle-specific enzyme isoforms and contractile intermediate filaments including tropomyosin and smooth muscle (SM22) alpha protein were detected in the myoepithelial cells, and a large number of cytokeratin subclasses and isoforms characteristic of luminal cells were detected in this cell type. A further 134 nondifferentially regulated proteins were also annotated from the two breast cell types, making this the most extensive study to date of the protein expression map of the normal human breast and the basis for future studies of purified breast cancer cells.  (+info)

Utilisation of prophylactic mastectomy in 10 European centres. (8/282)

Increasingly women at high risk of breast cancer are opting for prophylactic surgery to reduce their risks. Data from 10 European centres that offer a risk counselling and screening service to women at risk show different approaches to the option of preventive surgery, although most centres adhere to a protocol including at least two risk counselling sessions and a psychological assessment. Thus far the combined centres have data on 174 women who have undergone prophylactic mastectomy with in excess of 400 women years of follow up. Operations were carried out on women with lifetime risks of 25-80%, with an average annual expected incidence rate of 1% per women. No breast cancers have occurred in this cohort. Long term follow up on an extended group of women will be necessary to truly address the risk of subsequent breast cancer and the psychological sequelae.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of acetylsalicylic acid on microvascular thrombosis in autologous breast reconstruction.. AU - Enajat, M.. AU - Aziz Mohammadi, M.. AU - Debeij, J.. AU - van der Hulst, R.R.. AU - Mureau, M.A.. PY - 2014/1/1. Y1 - 2014/1/1. N2 - AbstractAlthough advances in microsurgery have increased success rates of autologous breast reconstruction, microvascular thrombosis still remains a major concern as a cause of flap failure. At present, no evidence-based guidelines on pharmacological prevention of microvascular thrombosis exist. This study investigates the effect of acetylsalicylic acid on the incidence of microvascular complications in patients undergoing autologous breast reconstruction. Patients undergoing deep inferior epigastric artery perforator or free transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap breast reconstruction at two academic centers in the Netherlands between 2005 and 2011 were included. Patients at one center received once daily 0.6 mL of nadroparine and 40 mg ...
For some patients, single-pedicle deep inferior epigastric perforator artery (DIEP) flaps do not adequately satisfy one or more critical components necessary to achieve an aesthetically satisfactory breast reconstruction; namely restoration of the footprint, conus and skin envelope(1). Satisfying all three elements is particularly challenging when abdominal tissue is relatively scant in the distribution of a single-pedicle DIEP flap and/or when healthy breast skin is deficient. We have found that bipedicle-conjoined abdominal flaps reliably produce aesthetically satisfactory breast reconstructions for women in whom single-pedicle DIEP flap reconstruction would be aesthetically inadequate ...
Postoperative complications in patients undergoing autologous breast reconstruction should be kept at the lowest possible level. Optimization of autologous breast reconstruction, especially techniques that can identify tissue perfusion and ischemia, will greatly benefit the patients and consequently society. Hence, the aim of this study was to evaluate the complication rates for autologous pedicle flap breast reconstructions, with and without the use of ICG-angiography. A single-institution retrospective review of mastectomy patients was performed. A total of 230 cases who underwent immediate or delayed, unilateral or bilateral pedicle autologous flap breast reconstruction between January 2013 and September 2016 was reviewed. Complication rates in the ICG-angiography and clinical assessment group were evaluated and compared. A total of 191 cases were identified of which 77 were evaluated with ICG-angiography, and 114 were evaluated clinically. There was no significant difference in overall ...
Surgical site infections (SSI) are wound infections that occur after invasive procedures.Particularly in plastic surgery procedures, to minimize the risk of SSI is imperative, since even minor infections are able to complicate the healing process and harm the cosmetic result.. Reduction mammaplasty is an effective and well established procedure performed for the relief of physical pain and discomfort associated with macromastia, which significantly decreases patients quality of life.Breast reduction has provided long-term relief for most patients, with high patient satisfaction.. The demand for this kind of plastic surgery is high.Reduction mammaplasty was the fifth most commonly surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons in women of United States.Since reduction mammaplasty is associated with a high incidence of wound problems,all effort to minimize the risk of SSI is valid. ...
INTRODUCTION: Abdominal-based microvascular breast reconstruction constitutes approximately one-fifth of reconstructions following mastectomy for breast cancer. Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols have been implemented to improve patient care. The aim of this project was to identify variation in the perioperative care of women undergoing microvascular breast reconstruction to inform development of an ERAS protocol. METHODS: Surveys were developed for plastic surgeons, anaesthetists and the lead clinician for breast reconstruction at each unit. These assessed most aspects of perioperative care. A team of medical student collaborators was identified. This team created a list of surgeons and anaesthetists in the United Kingdom by unit. REDCap was used to record their responses. RESULTS: Nineteen (19/39, 49%) lead clinicians, 83 (83/134, 62%) plastic surgeons and 71 (71/100, 71%) anaesthetists from units across the UK completed the surveys. Marked variation was identified in the clinician

The surgeons from UT Southwestern Medical Center have designed a new procedure to retain the nipples original color while undergoing breast reduction surgery in men. It prevents discoloration which is common in men who go for the removal of excess breast fat typically after a weight loss.. The complete findings of this procedure are enlisted in the research paper, now published in the journal Aesthetic Surgery Journal Open Forum.. This new process involves the removal of the lower side of the breast and then re-lifting it towards the face, creating the natural breast shape. The excessive fat from breast and skin is removed from the lower side only.. Also read- How To Protect Yourself From Coronavirus Infection in the Gym.

MD Anderson Cancer Center Abstract Introduction: A number of factors contribute to abdominal donor site morbidity following free flap breast reconstruction. Our study aims to provide a comprehensive analysis and propose an algorithm for management.. Methods: Retrospective analysis of all free flap breast reconstructions from January 2000-December 2010 at our institution.. Results: Overall 87 of 1507 patients developed an abdominal bulge/hernia (unilateral: 59/1000 vs. bilateral: 28/507). Patients undergoing bilateral free flap reconstruction were 42% more likely to develop an abdominal complication. Placement of mesh reduced bulge/hernia rates by nearly 85% (p=0.001), and primary closure was 3.34 times more likely to result in a hernia/bulge (p=0.004). Patients undergoing bilateral free flaps were significantly more likely to have mesh placed (p=0.0002), and were more likely to require a reoperation for a bulge/hernia (p=0.009). Subgroup analysis of flap type and perforator distribution also had ...

After reduction mammaplasty, patients typically experience soreness, swelling and bruising for several days. Bandages are removed after 2 days, and replaced with a surgical bra. Physical activity should be limited for 1 to 2 weeks, while exercise and other strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 4 weeks. Stitches are removed after 2 to 3 weeks, at which point most patients return to work and other regular activities.. The results of reduction mammaplasty are noticeable immediately after surgery. As swelling and bruising subside, the breasts appearance improves. Scars fade with time, and usually cannot be seen when a patient wears a bathing suit or low-cut top.. ...

She is reported to say, This fall Ill have a breast reduction operation. The breasts make me uncomfortable when I play. Its the weight that troubles me - my ability to react quickly.. Breast reduction (or reduction mammoplasty) is an operation designed to reduce and reshape large breasts. It is a surgical procedure designed to help reduce and in many cases eliminate, the pain and other symptoms associated with large breasts. Discomfort associated with large breasts can include chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as painful shoulder grooves from bra straps. It can also include chronic rashes under the breasts in the inframammary fold. These are the medical reasons to have a breast reduction. Most insurance companies in the United States will cover breast reduction surgery done for medical reasons. Be sure to check your ...
Breast Reduction, although actually a reconstructive surgical procedure, is used to correct marked breast enlargement, out of proportion to body size, and causing significant back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as a tendency to rashes and yeast infections in the folds under the breasts. The cause varies but is generally associated with genetic pre-disposition, hormone fluctuation (e.g. puberty, pregnancy, or menopause), or marked weight variation. Breast Reduction is a surgical method of size reduction of the breasts, relieving the weight burden, and usually producing an improvement in breast shape. Mastopexy or Breast Lift is a similar but distinct technique, designed to cosmetically restore a youthful breast shape and tissue firmness, but not remove any breast tissue. Insurance has traditionally covered the cost of Reduction Mammaplasty surgery (but not cosmetic Mastopexy), however, many HMOs and similar discount insurance schemes have found it convenient to deny this service by falsely ...
Background:. Antibiotics are used routinely in postoperative tissue expander based breast reconstruction (TE) and autologous flap (AF) breast reconstruction procedures. Closed suction drains are also used routinely in immediate breast reconstruction to prevent fluid accumulation and seroma formation at the surgical sites. Antibiotics are most often prescribed as a precaution because drains may serve as an open channel to outside contaminants. Plastic surgery patients without closed suction drainage devices are usually not placed on prolonged postoperative antibiotics. Current preoperative surgical antibiotic prophylaxis is recommended for up to 24 hours only. These recommendations do not take into account the increased risk of indwelling closed suction drains.. Current plastic surgery literature does not provide recommendations or consensus for antibiotic discontinuation following immediate breast reconstruction. A recent survey conducted of 650 plastic surgeons showed that 98% of respondents ...

Autologous flap breast reconstruction surgery in Dubai is famous for reconstructing the breast and restoring the lost confidence in your body.
The number of patients requesting autologous breast reconstruction (ABR) after mastectomy for breast cancer has increased over the past decades. However, concern has been expressed about the oncological safety of ABR. The aim of our study was to assess the effect of ABR on distant relapse. In this retrospective cohort study, data was analysed from patients who underwent mastectomy for invasive breast cancer in University Hospitals Leuven between 2000 and 2011. In total, 2326 consecutive patients were included, 485 who underwent mastectomy with ABR and 1841 who underwent mastectomy alone. The risk of relapse in both groups was calculated using a Cox proportional hazards analysis, adjusted for established prognostic factors. ABR was considered as a time-dependent variable. Additionally, the evolution of the risk over follow-up time was calculated. With a median follow-up of 68 months, 8% of patients in the reconstruction group developed distant metastases compared to 15% in the mastectomy alone group

Breast cancer related upper extremity lymphedema (BCRL) reduces the quality of life of those who have had surgery for breast cancer. The aim of this study is to evaluate the risk factors for BCRL and determine whether immediate autologous tissue breast reconstruction is one of them. A case control study was conducted comparing patients with BCRL (n=97) to surgically treated breast cancer patients without BCRL (control, n=126). The groups were matched for age, type of breast surgery and radiation therapy. Postoperative upper extremity infection, body mass index (BMI), occupation (level of hand-use), and immediate autologous tissue breast reconstruction were investigated as a risk factor of BCRL. Mastectomy was performed on 47.6 % (n=60) and 37.2% (n=36) of patients in the control and the BCRL groups, respectively. Eight patients (13.3%) had immediate autologous tissue breast reconstruction in the control mastectomy group. Six of 36 BCRL patients (16.7%) underwent mastectomy with immediate ...
A latissimus dorsi flap brings skin, fat, and muscle from the back to recreate the breast. Most women do not have sufficient back tissue to create a breast, so this approach often requires the placement of an implant as well.
When considering Breast Reconstruction after cancer, I will guide you through the possibilities for creating the most natural, beautiful breasts. There are a couple of different types of surgery that you may want to familiarize yourself with beforehand. These are the kinds of Breast Reconstruction surgeries available through my office. Some options utilize the bodys own tissue taken from areas with a little extra, such as the abdomen or thighs, and the others use silicone or saline implants.. DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction. DIEP stands for Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator. This technique uses excess skin and fat from the lower abdominal area. The incision is similar to the one used for a Tummy Tuck and can be easily hidden by clothing or bathing suit. Another benefit to this surgery is that it flattens the abdomen for an overall beautiful body contour. It spares the abdominal muscle and there is significantly less pain in the shorter recovery process. Since the muscles are in tact, the ...

Free-flap breast reconstruction is a type of autologous-tissue breast reconstruction applied after mastectomy for breast cancer, without the emplacement of a breast implant prosthesis. As a type of plastic surgery, the free-flap procedure for breast reconstruction employs tissues, harvested from another part of the womans body, to create a vascularised flap, which is equipped with its own blood vessels. Breast-reconstruction mammoplasty can sometimes be realised with the application of a pedicled flap of tissue that has been harvested from the latissimus dorsi muscle, which is the broadest muscle of the back, to which the pedicle (foot) of the tissue flap remains attached until it successfully grafts to the recipient site, the mastectomy wound. Moreover, if the volume of breast-tissue excised was of relatively small mass, breast augmentation procedures, such as autologous-fat grafting, also can be applied to reconstruct the breast lost to mastectomy. In surgical praxis, the abdomen is the ...

The DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator) flap is a modern advancement of the original abdominal wall TRAM flap that utilizes the patients own tissue from the lower abdomen to reconstruct the breast using fat and skin alone.. In this technically advanced procedure, the living fatty tissue (fat, skin and blood vessels) is removed from the abdomen and reattached in the breast area to rebuild your breast. Your surgeon will carefully reattach the blood vessels of the flap to blood vessels in your chest using microsurgery.. The abdominal skin is then closed, leaving the abdomen smaller in size. Because no muscle is used, most women recover more quickly and have a lower risk of losing abdominal muscle strength with a DIEP flap compared to any of the TRAM flap procedures.. ...

INCREASE IN QUALITY OF LIFE AFTER BREAST REDUCTION. Recent medical study shows Breast Reduction Surgery to decrease pain and significantly improve the quality of life.. Large, heavy breasts can cause much physical and psychological pain to women of all backgrounds and ages. Excessive breast size can literally weigh a woman down and throw off her center of gravity and the alignment of her spine. The result is a large array of health problems including chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, strained and overworked muscles, headaches, skin rashes, sagging breasts and stretch marks as well as low self-esteem and dissatisfaction with overall body image. Studies have also shown that women living with this type of physical pain compare their symptoms to other medical conditions with chronic pain such as arthritis, joint pain and low back pain.. Many women who suffer from these physical and emotional problems seek a breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty. This common surgical procedure can ...
DEAR MAYO CLINIC: Six years ago, at age 37, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a lumpectomy. I remained cancer-free until nine months ago, when the cancer returned. This time, I opted for a double mastectomy without reconstruction. If I decide to have breast reconstruction down the road, are my options limited since I didnt have it done right away? What type of reconstruction would you recommend for someone like me?. ANSWER: In general, breast reconstruction surgery falls into two categories. The first involves using a womans own tissue taken from another area of the body to form new breast mounds. This is called autologous breast reconstruction. The second uses breast implants to reshape the breasts.. If you decide to have breast reconstruction at some point, the standard treatment option based on your history would be autologous reconstruction. It would offer you the best chance for a successful outcome with the lowest risk of complications.. In most cases when women have a ...
The most common local complications and adverse outcomes are capsular contracture (hardening of breast area around the implant), reoperation (additional surgeries), implant removal and rupture or deflation of the implant. Other complications include implant wrinkling, asymmetry, scarring, pain, and infection at the incision site. These local complications often result in reoperation or implant removal.. Some women experience breast pain after implants for not just one, but even up to five to ten years.. Many women who have opted to replace their implants through natural tissue breast reconstruction have reported not only a reduction in breast pain, but a total elimination of breast pain altogether.. Thanks to natural tissue breast reconstruction, there is no risk of leak or rupture - your body will not be faced with the challenge of reacting to a foreign material. You will always have the feeling of your own warm, natural breast, never having to risk the possibility of capsular ...
METHODS:Between October 2005 and April 2010 in our Center 33 patients underwent breast surgery utilizing the skin-reducing mastectomy technique and immediate breast reconstruction with expansor/definitive implant Becker 35 contour profile. Contralateral symmetrization was performed in the same operation. All selected patients satisfied inclusion critera either for nipple-sparing mastectomy or prophylactic mastectomy. We selected patients who had large ptosic breasts: areola-submammary fold >8 cm and jugular-nipple distance >25 cm. After histologic exam to confirm the lack of retroareolar tissue infiltration the nipple was preserved in a superior flap ...

SUMMARY Adjuvant treatment planning can change after breast cancer resection and definitive pathological examination. Radiation therapy is often chosen as a supplementary treatment. Rectus abdominis-based muscle flaps are one of the main choices when breast reconstruction plans must be changed from implant-based to autologous methods. We herein report a case in which the patients own tissue expander capsule was used to repair an abdominal wall defect after muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap reconstruction.

Researchers are somewhat flummoxed by a new bump in breast reconstruction. Not only are more women undergoing immediate breast reconstruction after mastectomy, according to the January issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, but an increasing number are opting for implants, rather than autologous (using the womans own tissue) procedures, such as the TRAM flap reconstruction. Using a national database, the researchers assessed trends in breast reconstruction from 1998-2008. The rate of immediate reconstruction after mastectomy rose steadily each year - from about 21 percent to 38 percent by the end of the study. While the number of autologous breast reconstruction procedures remained relatively unchanged, the rate of reconstructions using implants increased by an average of 11 percent per year. The rise in reconstructions can perhaps be more easily explained by the fact that more women are opting for double mastectomies to prevent breast cancer, particularly in high-risk cases, according to ...

TRAM Flap. The most common method of using your own tissue to reconstruct the breast mound (autologous reconstruction) involves using your excess abdominal tissue. When reconstruction is performed with a Pedicled TRAM flap, the skin and fat of the lower abdomen remains connected to its blood supply via the underlying abdominal muscle (Rectus Abdomens). The muscle is transected at its lowermost point near the pelvis and rotated into the chest area, where the attached skin and fat are used to create a breast mound. In this manner, the abdominal muscle is sacrificed from its native position in the abdomen and transferred to the chest leaving a small amount of weakness and a higher chance of abdominal hernia or bulge in the future. This is a 3-4 hour surgery and requires an overnight stay in hospital.. DIEP Flap. A second option that uses abdominal tissue for breast reconstruction is the Deep Inferior Epigastric Artery Perforator (DIEP) flap. This is one of the free flap options for breast ...
Complications after breast reconstructive surgery are common, and they can be caused by a wide range of factors. The aim of the present study was to identify independent perioperative risk factors for postoperative complications after breast reconstruction.A retrospective study was performed of 623 consecutive breast cancer patients who had undergone deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap, latissimus dorsi (LD) flap, lateral thoracodorsal flap (LTDF), or tissue expander with secondary implant (EXP). Data on demography, perioperative parameters, and complications were collected. Logistic regression models adjusted to the reconstruction method and to confounding demographic factors were used for statistical analysis.Increased blood loss for each 10-ml step increased the risk for overall early complications (p = 0.017), early seroma (p = 0.037), early resurgery (p = 0.010), late local overall complications (p = 0.024), and late fat necrosis (p = 0.031). Longer duration of surgery for each ...

Brast reconstruction on cadaver course: Latest techniques of microsurgical breast reconstruction, implant-based and basic flap elevation.
Clinical research in the field of breast cancer surgery shows that skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) maximizes breast skin preservation and significantly improves the symmetry and natural appearance of reconstructed breasts.. SSM removes breast tissue along with the nipple and areola but leaves most of the breast skin in place. This approach to mastectomy, which retains most of the breast skin and minimizes scarring on the breast, is now widely accepted as oncologically sound in most cases, and when combined with immediate breast reconstruction, makes possible realistic and pleasing results.. Although there are exceptions, most women undergoing treatment for breast cancer and those undergoing prophylactic mastectomy (including BRCA gene mutation carriers) are candidates for SSM surgery. Women seeking even more realistic appearing breasts after mastectomy and reconstruction may want to consider nipple-sparing mastectomy.. ...

Generally, physicians who say that are referring to a more advanced kind of oncoplastic surgery that is based on reduction mammoplasty or major tissue rearrangement techniques. One of the major tenets of those techniques is to rearrange the tissue in a way that leaves no open space - meaning theres no cavity to accommodate a brachytherapy device. So for patients with larger breasts who would benefit from a reduction mammoplasty or a reduction with major tissue rearrangement, brachytherapy is not a good option.. However, a majority of patients dont require that extreme oncoplastic surgery. Most patients will benefit from the minor oncoplastic techniques that require shifting the nipple-areolar complex to compensate for any damage but still enable us to leave a cavity as with any standard lumpectomy. I believe advocates of the major oncoplastic techniques will agree that brachytherapy is compatible with the more minor oncoplastic approach that most breast surgeons can easily learn do to on their ...
Women considering mastectomy to treat breast cancer or for risk reduction (prophylactic mastectomy) may be candidates for innovative reconstructive procedures that can significantly improve the appearance of their breasts. Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) or as it is also known, nipple-preserving mastectomy, is the most cutting-edge technique of mastectomy presently available. NSM removes the breast gland, but allows a woman to keep her nipple and areola (the areola is the pigmented area surrounding the nipple) in place. NSM is intended to improve cosmetic outcomes following mastectomy without compromising cancer care or the effectiveness of risk reduction surgery. When appropriate oncologic and aesthetic criteria are strictly applied, NSM allows women to preserve their nipples and areolas and attain the best possible cosmetic results following mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction.. While there is some debate about NSM in the medical community, an ever growing number of studies ...
Gynecomastia refers to the enlargement of the glandular tissue in the male breast, but in other cases, the deformity may occur alongside or without skin and fat accumulation.
The removal of a breast, usually for treatment of breast cancer, presents both physical and emotional difficulties for women. Plastic surgical procedures are available which can reconstruct the breast following mastectomy or lumpectomy for breast cancer. Reconstruction can be unilateral, in the case of unilateral mastectomy, or bilateral, in the case of bilateral mastectomies. Breast reconstruction is usually performed at the time of the mastectomy or lumpectomy, but may also be performed afterwards. Breast reconstruction can be performed with implants or with your own tissue.
Dr. Roberta Gartside is a breast cancer survivor who understands personally the importance of breast reconstruction following a mastectomy. She is also an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon who understands that no single breast reconstruction option is ideal for every woman.
Breast Implants can be used for breast reconstruction and breast augmentation. Learn about breast implant types including silicone-filled, anatomic implants, and saline-filled implants.
Background: Acellular dermal matrix has gained widespread acceptance in immediate expander/implant reconstruction because of perceived benefits, including improved expansion dynamics and superior aesthetic results. Although previous investigators have evaluated its risks, few studies have assessed the impact of acellular dermal matrix on other outcomes, including patient-reported measures. Methods: The Mastectomy Reconstruction Outcomes Consortium Study used a prospective cohort design to evaluate patients undergoing postmastectomy reconstruction from 10 centers and 58 participating surgeons between 2012 and 2015. The analysis focused on women undergoing immediate tissue expander reconstruction following mastectomies for cancer treatment or prophylaxis. Medical records and patient-reported outcome data, using the BREAST-Q and Numeric Pain Rating Scale instruments, were reviewed. Bivariate analyses and mixed-effects regression models were applied. Results: A total of 1297 patients were evaluated, ...
Many would be surprised to learn women are not the only gender for breast reduction surgery? Gynecomastia is an enlargement of breast glandular tissue of males typically as a result of a hormonal imbalance. Although this condition affects men of different ages, gynecomastia commonly occurs in young males during puberty. Whether young or older, excess breast tissue or overly large breasts can be a source of frustration and embarrassment for many men particularly during workouts, swimming or when wearing restrictive clothing. Contrary to popular belief, many of the men who suffer from enlarged breasts cannot resolve with simple diet and exercise. Instead, these men must seek the help from a plastic surgeon to have the fat and/or tissue surgically removed. Depending on the severity of the excess breast tissue says Dr. Greenwald, I may address by either using SmartLipo to liposuction the area or I could excise the glandular tissue. In some instances, I may use a surgical approach that utilizes ...
A Breast Implant surgery, or Augmentation Mamaplasty, is performed to increase the breasts size. Breast Reduction surgery, or Reduction Mamaplasty, is to reduce the size and weight of the breasts.
The medical journal Medical Care recently published a study which found that mastectomy patients whose treatment teams included a plastic surgeon were more likely to undergo breast reconstruction.
I am a plastic surgeon who specializes in the reconstruction of areas of the body after surgery to remove a tumor. While this includes all types of surgical reconstruction, I have a specific interest in breast reconstruction and in reconstruction of the head and neck. Reconstruction helps to restore form, function, and appearance, while enhancing a patients self-confidence and self-image after cancer surgery. In my practice I utilize state-of-the-art techniques to perform reconstruction, including the use of perforator flaps such as the Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP). These techniques achieve the reconstructive goals while simplifying recovery.

Men get gynecomastia surgery because they want to decrease the size of their enlarged breast. For some men and boys, they develop extra tissue in their breasts for a number of reasons. One reason a male develops extra breast tissue is because of too much estrogen and not enough testosterone. Estrogen is a female hormone and testosterone is a male hormone. An imbalance of these hormones in a man results in extra-large breasts, commonly knowns as man boobs.. Male breast reduction surgery is a ground-breaking technique for reducing an excess of glandular tissue which in effect makes the male breast look more feminine. Gynecomastia surgery involves excisional surgery and liposuction.. Puberty plays a role in the development of gynecomastia. However, do to some habits, men may experience enlarged breasts because of too much alcohol consumption, smoking marijuana, prescription medication, steroids, liver disease, and tumors found in the brain, adrenal glands, and testicles. There are a number of ...

One of the more notable surgical advances in breast cancer treatment and prevention is nipple sparing mastectomy. This is a surgical technique similar to the traditional mastectomy that removes the whole breast, but unique in that it spares the skin, nipple and areola. This is then followed by immediate reconstruction.. While our goal in breast cancer treatment is limited surgery and breast preservation, at least 25% of patients will still require, or desire, mastectomy. By preserving the nipple, the psychological burden of mastectomy is greatly reduced. The nipple is central to the concept of breast preservation, and in properly selected patients, nipple-sparing mastectomy can provide the best treatment and cosmesis.. Who is a candidate?. There are two main issues governing the selection of candidates for nipple-sparing mastectomy:. 1. oncologic safety (will this safely treat cancer without leaving any behind?); and. 2. cosmesis (will this enhance the appearance of the reconstructed ...
Breast reduction surgery is associated with very high patient satisfaction rates because it delivers on several levels. A breast reduction will not only reduce the size of the breast, but will also tighten the skin envelope and lift the breast in the same way that a mastopexy, or breast uplift will, giving a smaller and more youthful appearance. Women with large breasts often suffer from back and neck ache with bra straps digging in - reducing the weight of the breast will often relieve the tension and help with these aches and pains. The weight of large breasts can also cause recurrent inflammation and infections in the fold between the breast and the chest wall, known as intertrigo, and this can be eliminated following breast reduction. Finally, there is the cost and inconvenience associated with finding a good bra in the larger sizes - it can be enormously liberating to finally be able to shop in any high street department store.. ...
The desired look of the male chest is broad and flat. Some men, unfortunately, struggle with a chest that may appear more feminine in nature. This condition is referred to as gynecomastia. While changes in lifestyle, including diet and exercise, can sometimes help flatten the chest, surgical intervention is often necessary. In this case, patients may turn to Westport plastic surgeon Dr. Anya Kishinevsky for male breast reduction. This procedure removes excess fat and breast tissue, helping to contour a mans chest.. Male breast reduction is a body contouring procedure that is performed to specifically target the aesthetic needs of some men. Men who deal with excess breast tissue that gives the appearance of a feminine chest may turn to this surgery as the only means for removing the tissue.. ...

Implant reconstruction is usually performed as a multiple-step procedure starting with tissue expanders. In certain cases, it can be performed in a single-stage (one-step). Implant procedures limit scarring to the chest (no scars on the abdomen or other areas of the body), involve shorter surgery and hospital stays, and are associated with quicker recovery (average 3-4 weeks) compared to flaps. Most plastic surgeons offer implant-based breast reconstruction. In terms of risks, implants can get infected or exposed and require removal. Long-term, implants can rupture or become hard due to scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture). Rippling is common (visible waves through the skin), and they often move unnaturally with chest activity (breast animation). Many women also complain that the breasts feel cold to the touch. Significant capsular contracture can cause breast deformity and pain, and 40% of patients need more surgery within the first 10 years due to implant related ...

Bacterial infection is a well-known complication of breast implant surgery. We identified Mycobacterium senegalense, the principal pathogen of bovine farcy of cattle, in a woman after implant-based breast reconstruction. This finding indicates that unusual pathogens should be considered as an etiology of infected breast prostheses.
Three main incision patterns are used. The first is around the nipple called a circumareolar incision. The areola is the pigmented aspect of the nipple. The second major pattern is around the nipple and down to the crease beneath the breast, where the wire is in a bra. This is typically called a lollipop pattern. This is most frequently used pattern for cosmetic breast lift surgery. The third main pattern is around the nipple, down to the crease, and also underneath the breast. Sometimes this is called a keyhole or anchor pattern. This is the operation with the largest incisions. It is used for breasts that have a lot of hanging or are very large, like with breast reduction. Breast lift cost is not determined by the incisions.. Breast augmentation, breast enlargement or both operations, at the same, time can also be done. This is an option for those patients who want increased volume, in addition to shape change. The breast augmentation or breast enlargement gives the increased volume. The ...
The most important factor in the design and performance of a breast reduction is the blood supply and as we repeat so often, the patient can make their significant contribution by not smoking prior to and after the operation. This one factor contributes to many complications. Avoidance of drugs, medicines and tablets containing aspirin and indomethacin and gingko biloba is also very important.. Each individuals blood supply is different both in architecture and magnitude of the vessels. Youth, genetics, pregnancy and breastfeeding can all produce differences in the blood supply. It is an inevitable requirement that some of this blood supply is cut during surgery and it is important that an adequate supply remains. Unfortunately, perhaps due to spasm of the remaining vessels this supply may be inadequate to nourish the remaining tissues and if this occurs, there may be areas of skin at the end of the supply line that do not survive. The two areas most at risk are the corners of the skin scar T ...
Lipofilling (or structural fat grafting) is now an established technique. It uses patients own fat as a permanent filler to add volume to soft tissues. The fat is harvested with thin cannulas, through small incisions, using the conventional liposuction technique. After washing and filtering, the isolated fat cells are injected into the deficient area(s). In addition to adding volume, micro fat transfer reduces scarring, improving the quality and elasticity of the overlying skin. Its mechanism of action is not yet fully understood but by repeated clinical application, this technique has demonstrated its safety and efficacy.. Lipofilling is used in soft tissue augmentation, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, facial reconstruction (e.g. Rombergs disease) and breast surgery (both reconstructive and aesthetic). Another term for this procedure is autologous fat grafting.. ...

The woman wanting a lift is usually slightly different. She had breasts she was happy with before, she had loving kids who she may or may not have breastfed, exercised and had a good life. They come wanting to restore the youthful breast they once they had(or better), they hate that it is slightly more deflated than before and its slightly more south then theyd like. The formal name of this operation is Mastopexy and thats why you hear terms like Mastopexy augmentation because often in order to restore the youthfulness of the breast you not only need to reposition the nipple/areolar complex up with a mastopexy, you also need to provide some additional volume with an implant, hence augmentation as well. The discussion with implant also is entirely different discussion all together, but this highlights the primary difference in the reduction and a lift. ...

Breast reduction plastic surgery could be a solution for those who have other complaints as a result of breast size is too large. Before the procedure followed, there are a few things to note. What are they?. You will undergo this procedure must be prepared to undergo surgery. In addition, it should be noted there is also a change in the shape of the body and the risk of scarring. For the age, the requirement can be done during adolescence if the patient is not comfortable with breast shape, both physical and psychological complaints. We recommend that you consult with an experienced plastic surgeon baltimore like Dr Shermak because of the many techniques used will affect the scar. Do not hesitate to ask for photos before after the other to see the results of the operation.. This procedure costs generally depends on the patients condition. Well, after breast diminished, patients are asked to use a special bra for a month. Patients are also given a special ointment for the treatment of scars. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A new technique of internal suture mastopexy for mild to moderate breast ptosis. AU - Mahabir, Raman Chaos. AU - Zamboni, William A.. PY - 2008/3. Y1 - 2008/3. N2 - BACKGROUND: Current mastopexy techniques rely on incisions on the breast to correct ptosis. Trading a ptotic breast for a visibly scarred breast can be a difficult choice. OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: A technique of internal suture mastopexy that consists of plicating sutures placed in the superficial fascia of the breast from the deep surface is presented. The procedure leaves no scar on the breast and may be safer than other techniques when combining mastopexy with augmentation. RESULTS: The senior author has performed this procedure on over 120 patients, with a mean follow-up of two years. Patients and the surgeon have expressed satisfaction with the procedure. CONCLUSION: Based on this experience with over 120 patients, the authors believe that internal suture mastopexy is an effective alternative in selected ...
