- 180 lbs
39 year-old woman. 5’8” tall, weighing 180 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 then reconstructed her nipples and placed 355cc Moderate Plus Silicone Gel Implants to achieve a fuller look. 3-D nipple tattooing was done in the office to complete her reconstruction.
