Description

64 year-old woman. 4’10” tall, weighing 135 lbs. Immediately following her bilateral mastectomy, Dr. Armijo performed the first stage of breast reconstruction with the placement of tissue expanders. Once the patient was expanded to her desired size, Dr. Armijo performed a bilateral DIEP flap procedure, using the skin and fat from her tummy to reconstruct her breasts. Dr. Armijo reconstructed her nipples at a third stage. The patient then received 3 -D nipple tattooing in the office to complete her reconstruction.
