Case 254

This 53-year-old female came to see our doctors to discuss breast reconstruction options. She had been diagnosed with a left sided breast cancer and wanted to pursue reconstruction after a planned nipple sparing mastectomy in Austin, Texas.

Our doctor met with her for about an hour on her initial visit. He showed her pictures and discussed options. She had a small breast and wanted to stay about the same size as the right side and didn’t want surgery on the right side.

This photo shows the patient several months after her final surgery. She went two operations for the reconstruction. At the first stage a breast expander was placed and at the second stage the expander was removed, an implant was placed, and fat grafting was performed. Her initial mastectomy was nipple sparing so she did not need additional nipple reconstruction.

Case 241

This 52-year-old female was sent to our doctors after seeing a general surgeon to address her benign breast tumors and discomfort from them. Her general surgeon was discussing a prophylactic mastectomy to help solve these issues and felt breast reconstruction would be a great option for her.

Our doctor spent an hour discussing options and strategies with her during the first consultation. Because her breast shape was smaller (small C/full B) our doctor felt a nipple sparing approach with her only incision being placed in the breast fold was an option. This incision is only slightly larger than a breast augmentation patient but can really only be performed in smaller breasted patients.

These photos show her after expansion, placement of shaped gummy bear implants, and fat grafting.

Case 237

This 45-year-old female was referred to our doctors from her general surgeon to discuss breast reconstruction options. She had a left sided breast cancer that was going to require some additional skin excision than what is normally required for a mastectomy.

She decided to have a bilateral mastectomy. Sometimes having a bilateral surgery can help create the most symmetric result but this is always an individual patient decision. Our doctors spent a significant amount of time talking with the patient and helping her to understand her options.

These pictures show her after several surgeries to complete a full reconstruction. This includes her expander placement, exchange to implants, nipple reconstruction, and fat grafting. The fat her harvested for her fat grafting sessions has the benefit of giving the same results as liposuction to the areas we take it from which she was happy about.

Case 139

This patient from Austin, Texas came to see our doctors at the Round Rock, Texas plastic surgery practice for breast reconstruction after being diagnosed with a breast cancer and learning that she was going to have to undergo a mastectomy. Understandably, this is very emotional time and our doctors and the staff pride themselves in helping to empower breast reconstruction patients while also teaching them about the options they have to restore their breasts after cancer surgery.

During her consultation with our doctor spent about an hour teaching her about the various types of breast reconstruction surgeries that are available.

Her breast reconstruction involved several stages: initially an expander was placed at the time of mastectomy, after expanding her breasts over about two months the expanders were removed and a silicone breast implant was placed, two months after this nipples were reconstructed, and finally autologous fat transfer (AFT) was used to add fullness and shape to the upper breast using fat harvested via liposuction from the abdomen. This is similar to the BRAVA technique also offered at synergy plastic surgery using autologous fat transfer (BRAVA-AFT) but also uses implants rather than fat grafting alone.

Case 240

This 55-year-old female found our doctors after being referred by her general surgeon. She was interested in discussing reconstruction after a mastectomy and what options where available for her.

Because her cancer was small and located a large distance from her nipple a nipple sparing mastectomy and breast reconstruction was possible. This allows the patient to keep their own nipple and step the nipple reconstruction step. This method is only suitable for the right patients with a favorable breast shape (C cup or smaller) and tumor size and position.

This photo shows her after breast expansion, implant placement, and fat grafting.
